Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

How to treat fatty pancrease?

Usually no need

Pancrease
Dr. Kim is correct. As an autopsy pathologist, I see this frequently and unless there is obvious disease already, it's a normal variant. Different people deposit fat in different places (look around you!) and many people store some in their pancreas.

Is pancrelipase a good substitute to pancrease?

Maybe

Pancreas
It depends on why you're taking pancrease. If it's because your pancreas does not make enough pancrease on its own (pancreatic exocrine insufficiency), then you may also be deficient in lipase, so a combination of the two may be good for your condition. Hope this helps.

Dr. John J. Fung answered:

Can you tell me about surgery on their pancrease?

Depends on reason

Skd239297sdc
Pancreatic procedures are done for a variety of reasons: for malignant indications, for inflammatory indications, for traumatic indications and rarely for benign indications. Traditionally these were done as an open procedure, i.e. incision. More recently, minimally invasive procedures with laparoscopy or robotic surgery have been introduced. Whatever the approach, the principles are the same.

Dr. Jeff Durgin answered:

Is there no cure for PANCREASE DIVISIUM WITH PAIN?

Pancreatic divisum

Pain
Patients with pancreatic division are often worked up with MRCP and/or ERCP. Patients may undergo endoscopic or surgical therapy, in the form of sphincterotomy or sphincteroplasty. In a systematic review, Liao found that the pooled response rate to surgical intervention for acute recurrent pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, and chronic abdominal pain was 83.2%, 66.7%, and 51.6%, respectively; the overall response rate to surgery was 74.9%

Could I have a pancrease transfer to cure diabetics?

Yes

Open-uri20131222-27753-1rj4egi
In diabetics a pancreas transplant is often performed together with a kidney transplant. There is also research into using pancreatic islet cell transplantation which is less invasive usually than a whole organ transplantation in diabetics to restore beta cell function (the insulin producing cells of the pancreas.) Islet cell transplantation is still considered experimental.

what is a mucinuos cystic neoplasm of the pancrease?

Complicated

Pancrease
There are three possible entities to which you are referring. Mucinous cystadenoma (benign), mucinous cystadenosarcoma (malignant), and intraductal papillary mucinous tumor (benign or malignant). All three have certain appearances on imaging studies. They can be treated surgically and if malignant, have a better prognosis than "traditional" pancreatic cancer (adenocarcinoma).

Dr. Tracy A. Berg answered:

How can we transplant the beta cells of the pancrease?

Work in progress

Stringio
Islet or beta cell transplant for insulin production has scientific backing. Check out JDF/Juvenile Diabetes Foundation website 4 links. The enduring problem is not so much the mechanics of the transplant, but preventing autoimmune response from attacking the new cells. In the meantime, if your'e type I, take advantage of amazing technology for management. Pump, sensor, transmitter, amylin.
