Abstract

Management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm is controversial, and several guidelines have aimed to establish an adequate strategy for surgical resection and surveillance. We compared various intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm guidelines and considered new matters that are pivotal for improved treatment of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm. We identified and compared 11 published guidelines, three of which were major guidelines that mainly referred to the diagnosis and treatment of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (International Association of Pancreatology 2012 guidelines, European Study Group on Cystic Tumours of the Pancreas 2013 guidelines, and American Gastroenterological Association 2015 guidelines). The main concerns of these three guidelines were indication for surgery and follow up of non-resected lesions. Among the differences between the three guidelines, the period of surveillance recommended was the most controversial matter. Meanwhile, several nomograms have been proposed to improve the diagnosis of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm from the level of experts' experiences to that of rational systems. We discuss the adequate strategy of surveillance for intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm with and without pancreatectomy and nomograms aiming to predict the risk of malignancy in patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm.
