Pancreatic diseases represent a crucial issue not only for their epidemiological relevance, for the anatomical and metabolic complexity, but also for the different treatment options and for their surgical implications. Due to the slow but steady increase in their incidence, pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer are today a real challenge for the surgeon. Scope of this volume is therefore to outline the state of the art of surgery in inflammatory and neoplastic pancreatic diseases, describing in details the different approaches and their most relevant technical aspects. However, also conventional and interventional radiology, operative endoscopy and ecoendoscopy (recently entered in the diagnostic path), adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapy aimed to treatment or to palliative cares are described: only a multidisciplianary approach can in fact grant a global vision, winning strategy for the optimization of results.Along with expert texts, the volume include several colour images and drawings, and represents a very useful tool in clinical practice.Table of contents History of Pancreatic Surgery.- Surgical Anatomy of the Pancreas.- Pancreatic Trauma.- Epidemiology, Classification, Etiopathogenesis and Diagnosis of Acute Pancreatitis.- Imaging on Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis.- Medical Treatment of Acute Pancreatitis.- ERCP and Endoscopic Sphincterotomy for Acute Pancreatitis: Indications and Technical Aspects.- Indications, Timing and Surgical Technique for Acute Pancreatitis.- Indications and Surgical Technique for Chronic Pancreatitis.- Pancreatic Pseudocysts.- Cystic Tumors of the Pancreas.- Neuroendocrin Tumors of the Pancreas.- Epidemilogy and Prevention of Pancreatic Cancer.- Imaging on Pancreatic Neoplasms.- Pancreatic cancer: Pathological Factors and TNM Staging.- Preoperative Staging and Resecability Assessment of Pancreatic Cancer.- Antibiotic and Antithrombotic Prophylaxis for Pancreatic Surgery.- Operative Endoscopic Ultrasonography on Pancreatic Diseases.- Pancreatoduodenectomy: Perioperative Management and Surgical Technique.- Different Ways of Managing Pancreatic Stump.- Surgical Treatment of Pancreatic Stump: Comparing Different Techniques.- Oncological Resection of Pancreatic Cancer: Lymphadenectomy and Vascular Resections.- Distal Pancreatectomy.- Central Pancreatectomy.- Total Pancreatectomy.- Laparoscopic Approach to the Pancreas: Benefits and Limitations.- Laparoscopic Pancreatectomies.- Robotic Pancreatectomies.- Nutrition Support in Acute Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Surgery.- Post-Operative Pancreatic Fistula: Classification and Management.- Inhibitors of Pancreatic Secretion and Antiproteases in Acute Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Surgery.- Complications after Pancreatic Surgery.- Pancreas Transplantation.- Endoscopic Palliation of Pancreatic Cancer: Biliary and Duodenal Stenting.- Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer: Surgical Palliation.- Interventional Radiology for Pancreatic Diseases.- Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy for Pancreatic Cancer.- Pain Relief in Pancreatic Uunresectable Cancer and after Pancreatic Surgery.
