Clinical Challenges in Hepatobiliary Surgery: Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm (IPMN)

OVERVIEW

What’s the one clinical scenario where you can really save a patient’s life with a pancreatectomy? An IPMN with high-grade dysplasia! Join the Behind the Knife HPB Team for a deep dive into the complex decision-making surgical management of IPMNs.
Learning Objectives
In this episode, we review the basics of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, how to evaluate patients with a cystic mass of the pancreas, guidelines for surveillance, and indications for resection. We discuss key concepts such as Worrisome Features and High-Risk Stigmata and how those influence surgical decision-making, and tackle a few of the most challenging scenarios surgeons may face when treating patients with IPMNs.
