Book Description:
In this book, the authors provide current research in the study of the anatomy, diseases and health implications of the pancreas. The pancreas consists of two organs in one; the exocrine gland secretes enzymes into the digestive tract, and the endocrine gland secretes hormones into the bloodstream. Topics discussed in this compilation include the development of the islets of Langerhans in the human fetal pancreas; autophagy in pancreatic diseases; characteristics of primary cystic pancreatic neoplasms; embryology of the pancreas and associated anomalies; emerging therapeutic options for metastatic exocrine pancreatic cancer; minimally invasive pancreaticoduodenetcomy; and minimally invasive pancreatectomy.
