Scrotal abscess as the first symptom of fatal necrotizing pancreatitis.
We report a case of scrotal swelling as the first sign of unrecognized severe necrotizing pancreatitis with a fatal outcome. PMID: 31707415 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: In conclusion, Frey's procedure appears to be a less burdensome surgical procedure. Thus, it could be the first option for management of patients with large pancreatic stone. PMID: 31824884 [PubMed]
Conclusion: The present findings have demonstrated the beneficial protective and therapeutical effects of ruscogenin, nominating it as a highly promising supplementary agent to be considered in the treatment of AP, and even as a protective agent against the damages induced by disease.

This study was designed to investigate characteristics of the disease to predict recurrence.Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 617 patients that experienced a first AP attack between January 2009 and December 2014. Based on reviews of clinical and follow-up data, we attempted to identify risk factors of recurrence using Cox regression analysis.Results: During a median follow-up of 3.2 years (range 3-72 months), 100(16.2%) of the 617 study subjects experienced one or more episodes of recurrent acute pancreatitis (RAP). Of these 100 patients, 75(75%) experienced one relapse, 12(12%) two relapses, and 13(13%) ...
A 29-year-old woman, G2P1001, presented with irregular vaginal bleeding for 7 weeks 2 days and a serum beta-hcg level of 3000 mIU/mL. The patient had previously undergone two open abdominal surgeries for necrotizing pancreatitis four years ago. Abdominal and bimanual examinations revealed the prior inverted U-shaped surgical scar (Figure 1) and a normal size uterus without any tenderness or pain.

ConclusionsCertain radiomic features on CT imaging can differentiate patients with functional abdominal pain, RAP, and CP.
Authors: Fujisawa T, Isayama H, Gunji T, Sato H, Matsuhashi N Abstract Objectives To clarify the significance of ultrasonographically recorded pancreatic duct dilatation. Methods Various parameters predicting pancreatic disease were evaluated in relation to pancreatic duct dilatation using data from medical checkups of healthy examinees. Results Records of 281,384 subjects were analyzed. Pancreatic duct dilatation ( ≥3 mm) was determined ultrasonographically in 524 patients (0.19%). Subsequent detailed examinations revealed the presence of pancreatic disease in 24.8% of these patients, including pancreatic cysts...
