Presentation Overivew

Pancreatic cystic lesions are common and usually identified as incidental findings on imaging performed for other indications.  Although the majority of these lesions have little malignant potential, it is important to we aware of high risk features for malignancy potential and follow accepted surveillance guidelines.  In this presentation, we will review the various types of pancreatic cystic lesions, appreciate their natural history and discuss the evidence available to date regarding the evaluation and management of pancreatic cystic lesions.  I will also introduce the multidisciplinary UHN Pancreatic Cyst Clinical and Research Program, the first of its kind in Canada.

The main focus of his clinical practice is minimally invasive and open surgical management of patients with complicated colon and rectal cancers, with a high volume of endoscopic screening and surgery for individuals with hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes. His research interests focus on the molecular genetic determinants of colorectal cancer risk, cancer prognosis and predictive response to therapy.

Presentation Overivew

A variety of inherited germline genetic mutations can predispose to gastrointestinal tumours, including cancers of the colon, stomach, pancreas and esophagus. Perhaps our most advanced and clinically relevant knowledge comes from understanding the genetic determinants for developing colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer syndromes have historically been classified as leading to polyposis or non-polyposis phenotypes, including Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and Lynch syndrome, respectively. However, variability in polyp numbers has been observed in both of these syndromes as well as MUTYH polyposis (MAP) and other rare colorectal cancer syndromes, leading to the intermediate classification of attenuated polyposis (or AFAP). Identification of at-risk individuals predisposed to these syndromes allows for tailored screening and colorectal cancer prevention. Increasingly, our understanding of the inherited genetic alterations leading to colorectal cancer is also allowing for personalized patient care including chemoprevention, choice of specific surgical interventions for colorectal and extacolonic cancers and molecular-based chemotherapeutic treatment.
