The increasing incidence of both chronic pancreatitis and pan creatic cancer was the primary impetus for the organization of this meeting, an additional factor being the widespread existence of pancreatic disease within Italy itself. It is well known that the treatment of chronic and particularly of acute pancreatitis is still a matter of controversy, and it seemed useful to compare our own experience with that of other centers working in the same field. Consequently, in addition to numerous Italian specialists in the field, doctors from the Federal Republic of Germany, Denmark, Great Britain, France, and Austria were invited to attend the meeting. The symposium lasted two days and comprised eight sessions dealing with the anatomy and physiology of the pancreas and the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of pancreatic diseases. A central feature of the discussion on the surgical treatment of chronic pancreatitis was the debate between those who favor the use of drainage and those who believe resection to be the best treatment. Finally, I would like to thank Dr. Cavallini and Dr. Pederzoli very much for their help in organizing the meeting and also the local authorities for their aid. Professor Adamo Dagradi Director of the Institute of Clinica Chirurgica, Verona Opening Address I am pleased to welcome all partlclpants and particularly the guests from abroad, to this meeting on the clinical evaluation of pancreatitis.

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States and has the worst mortality rate of any cancer. It is very likely that the number of deaths from pancreatic cancer each year will surpass the number of deaths from other more common cancers, such as breast cancer. This volume is dedicated to helping curb these daunting statistics by providing a knowledge base for clinicians and scientists who want to make a difference for patients both now and in the future. Edited by an eminent team consisting of a medical oncologist, a cancer surgeon and a pathologist, with contributions from over 100 world-class experts in the field, the book includes 54 state of the art chapters -- all with full color illustrations. Special "Commentaries," written by world authorities on the subject, provide expert analysis and counterpoint to selected topics.

The medical condition characterized by the inflammation of the pancreas is known as pancreatitis. There are two principal categories of pancreatitis - acute and chronic pancreatitis. Symptoms of pancreatitis are abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. In acute pancreatitis, the pancreas undergoes sudden inflammation. It is caused by a gallstone blocking the common bile duct, systemic diseases, trauma, heavy alcohol use and mumps. It can be recurrent or it may progress into chronic pancreatitis. It can be treated through intravenous nutritional support, pain control and intravenous fluid rehydration. Chronic pancreatitis is a long-term inflammation of the pancreas in which the structure and function of the pancreas is irreversibly changed. It is generally caused by idiopathic pancreatitis, tumors, intraductal obstruction, calcific stones, ischemia, etc. Chronic pancreatitis can be treated through therapeutic endoscopy and surgery. This book brings forth some of the most innovative concepts and elucidates the unexplored aspects of acute and chronic pancreatitis. It strives to provide a fair idea about these medical conditions to help develop a better understanding of the latest diagnostic and therapeutic advances in this field. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make this book an invaluable source of knowledge.

Clearly structured text, presented with the corresponding illustrations on a two-page spread Compiled by a team of authors with many years' experience in the field of diseases of the pancreas, this book is an ideal combination of evidence-based literature and the authors' expertise. An interdisciplinary approach to the basis, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the pancreas has been chosen, and the succinct and clearly structured text is consistently linked with the corresponding illustrations on a two-page spread. The division into three major parts (acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic tumors) further enhances the clarity of the text. In the chapter 'Acute pancreatitis', along with the new markers of necrosis, several major topics of imaging via nuclear magnetic resonance and the different randomized controlled studies addressing treatment are covered. In the section on chronic pancreatitis, clinical aspects, pancreatic function and imaging, and recent clinical studies receive special attention. Finally, in the section on tumors of the pancreas, particular emphasis has been placed on imaging with the newer techniques of spiral computed tomography and ultra-rapid magnetic resonance imaging in the 'all-in-one' technique. Furthermore, molecular biology, which in the future will become increasingly important, and the concept of gene polymorphisms underlying many diseases have received special attention. This clearly laid out and easily readable encyclopedia is aimed particularly at general practitioners and students in their clinical years, as well as at specialists who desire a more in-depth knowledge of the pancreas, such as internists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, pathologists and pediatricians. But others will also find this to be a comprehensive reference book on the subject.

Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is defined as a continuous or recurrent inflammatory disease of the pancreas characterized by progressive and irreversible morphological changes. It typically causes pain and permanent impairment of pancreatic function. In chronic pancreatitis, areas of focal necrosis are typically associated with perilobular and intralobular fibrosis of the parenchyma, by stone formation in the pancreatic duct, and by the development of pseudocysts. Late in the course of the disease a progressive loss of endocrine and exocrine function occurs. In the past, chronic pancreatitis was considered to be mostly associated with chronic alcohol abuse. During the past 2 decades idiopathic chronic pancreatitis and, moreover, hereditary pancreatitis have been recognized as distinct disease entities. Usually the diagnosis is made by a combination of imaging procedures such as ultrasound and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and exocrine and endocrine function tests. Therapy is presently restricted to symptom control for the lack of a causal treatment strategy. Thirty to sixty percent of all patients develop disease-associated complications such as persistent pain, strictures of the common bile duct, or pancreatic duct stones that may require either endoscopic or surgical treatment. Chronic pancreatitis is a difficult condition to live with as well as to treat. Optimal care needs to be carried out in a multidisciplinary environment that can address both the physical and psychological aspects of the disease. It is commonly seen in alcohol-dependent individuals, but many other groups of individuals suffer with irreversible inflammatory destruction of the pancreas. Abdominal pain is the predominant feature and pain specialists are an important part of any pancreatic team. Exocrine and endocrine failure are addressed by appropriate nutrition with supplements and insulin, whilst the complications that are seen over time, may require a combination of endoscopic and surgical treatment. This clinical update has been designed to update the readers on the important aspects of CP. The book has stressed upon various aspects of the condition like the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and evaluation along with an insight into the management approach of the patient. Supportive case scenarios have also been incorporated with relevance to the topics covered under the book. Overall, the book presents to the readers an excellent compilation of clinically applicable literature sourced from the most acclaimed physicians in the country.
