“…Apesar de representarem uma pequena parte do grupo de lesões, os tumores císticos pancreáticos são responsáveis por um número considerável de indicações de cirurgias pancreáticas. É de extrema importância reconhecer as características das lesões e seu comportamento para um diagnóstico com exatidão, além disso quando está associado à síndromes torna-se ainda mais complexo, sem dúvidas é um desafio para o cirurgião [13].…”

“…It was observed, mainly, that a more precarious clinical status assessed by both ASA and ECOG scores was associated with a higher mortality, as previously pointed out by Chou et al (31) The socioeconomic profile of patients in our country is strongly reflected in terms of nutritional status and access to health services. Thus, these are patients whose diagnosis is very late and who, in most cases, are admitted with clinical and nutritional conditions already significantly deteriorated in the referral service (32,33) . There is strong evidence that the results of general and oncologic surgical treatments for pancreatic cancer are significantly worse in populations with more precarious socioeconomic status due to issues such as a difficulty to access referral services and their generally deteriorated health status (34)(35)(36) .…”

“…In addition, even today surgical treatment is still associated with significant morbidity and mortality 6 . When analyzing the Brazilian national scenario, there are only few studies on the subject, usually based on case reports 7 , already operated case series 8,9 , or case series submitted to some specific exam and no appropriate clinical or radiological follow-up 10 . The objective of this study was to evaluate a consecutive series of patients seeking the clinic of digestive tract diseases with pancreatic cyst, whose diagnosis of pseudocyst was ruled out and the one of pancreatic cystic neoplasia (PCN) was most likely.…”
