Brief Summary:
In this single-center experience we retrospectively evaluated principal clinical outcomes of endoscopic papillectomy in all patients referred to our unit. The same evaluation was then performed dividing sproradic ampullary adenoma from familial adenomatous polyposis associated adenomas, and resulting outcomes were compared.

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 62 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Endoscopic Papillectomy for Ampullary Adenomas: an Italian Single Centre Experience
Actual Study Start Date : January 1, 2005
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : December 31, 2017

Intervention Details:
  • Procedure: Endoscopic Papillectomy
    Endoscopic resection of ampullary of Vater neoplasms

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. technical success [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    The primary outcome of the study was the technical success of endoscopic papillectomy, considered as achieved when all the following criteria were met: a) complete removal, even in multiple sessions b) absence of residues at histology (histology <= pT1) at the first follow-up; c) recurrence successful treated by endoscopy (not surgery). Technical failure of EP was considered when at least one of the following criteria was met: a) histology> pT1; b) residual adenomatous tissue not suitable of endoscopic resection; c) recurrence treated by surgery

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. number of procedures to achieve technical success [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    number of procedures to achieve technical success

  2. incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    incidence of adverse events

  3. incidence of recurrence [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    incidence of recurrence

  4. concordance of histology pre- and post endoscopi papillectomy [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    concordance of histology pre- and post endoscopi papillectomy
