Percutaneous cryoablation of recurrent pancreatic mass for life-threatening pancreatic vipoma syndrome
from CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology via Springer Link
We present the case of a 73-year-old female who underwent percutaneous cryoablation for recurrent life-threatening pancreatic vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-producing tumor (VIPoma) following a pancreaticoduodenectomy and chemotherapy 5 years earlier. She presented with profuse watery diarrhea causing severe electrolyte and acid–base abnormalities, along with acute kidney injury. Cryoablation was successful in treating her profound symptoms, completely reversing her clinical course. The patient has made a successful recovery for the last 1.5 years since the procedure.
