Additionally, intestinal-type IPMNs more often involve the main pancreatic duct
, whereas branch-duct-type IPMNs usually show gastric-type differentiation.
In a local study conducted by Haqqi on 50 patients regarding post ERCP pancreatitis, female gender (64%), precut sphincterotomy (68%), pancreatic duct
contrast injections (54%), higher number of attempts of CBD cannulation and difficult CBD cannulation were recognized as factors for post ERCP pancreatitis10.
Cigarette smoking impairs pancreatic duct
cell bicarbonate secretion.
Caption: Figure 4: MR Cholangiopancreatography reveals that the common bile duct (large arrow) and the main pancreatic duct
(small arrow) are pulled down and leftward into the elongated duodenum.
Initial experience with EUS-guided cholangiopancreatography for biliary and pancreatic duct
drainage: a spanish national survey," Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, vol.
Autoimmune pancreatitis is characterised by diffuse enlargement of pancreas, narrowing of pancreatic duct
, lymphoplasmacytic infiltrations and fibrosis.
When involvement is focal or multifocal, the involved segments tend to be well demarcated and can lead to upstream pancreatic duct
dilatation, which may mimic pancreatic malignancy.
Another protective mechanism to prevent the premature activation of trypsinogen to trypsin inside the pancreatic duct
is rapidly sweeping out zymogens from the pancreas.
The mass grew within the lumen of the main pancreatic duct
in the head of the pancreas, with upstream dilatation of the Wirsung duct.
Intraductal papillary mucinous tumor typically shows communication with the pancreatic duct
An endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram (ERCP) was performed and indicated a thickening of the pancreatic duct
The pancreatic duct
(of Wirsung) extends through the length of the gland and empties into the duodenum at the hepatopancreatic ampulla (of Vater) through which the common bile duct from the liver and gallbladder also enters the duodenum.
Specific topics include charge-selective claudin channels, dynamic properties of the tight junction barrier, the regulation of tight junction in human normal pancreatic duct
epithelial cells and cancer cells, diverse types of junctions containing tight junction proteins in stratified mammalian epithelia, and the involvement of claudins in zebrafish brain ventricle morphogenesis.
The results could eventually lead to ways to repair damaged insulin-producing beta cells or pancreatic duct
He said that by changing the growth conditions we can select two different fates for the stem cells and generate large numbers of either hormone-producing beta cells or pancreatic duct
