    • ... Even if the primary cyst is removed by partial pancreatectomy, there is a risk of progression of existing synchronous lesions or the development of new metachronous lesions, including invasive cancer, in the remnant pancreas...

    • ...Therefore, it would seem prudent to treat radiologically evident mixed BT-IPMNs as main-duct IPMNs and resect where possible. It is not known if mixed IPMN lesions represent a natural progression towards malignancy in BT-IPMNs or if they represent a separate clinicopathological entity, and more clinical data are required regarding these subtypes. BT-IPMNs may also involve multiple side-branches, thus further complicating their surveillance; although conservative management of such lesions has been described, this has resulted in a resection rate of 7.6% over a 40-month period, with all surveillance patients alive with no invasive cancer [...
