Background: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is an important precursor lesion of pancreatic cancer. Systemic inflammatory parameters are widely used in the prognosis prediction of cancer; however, their prognostic implications in IPMN with associated invasive carcinoma (IPMN-INV) are unclear. This study aims to explore the prognostic value of systemic inflammatory parameters in patients with IPMN-INV. Methods: From 2015 to 2021, patients with pathologically confirmed IPMN who underwent surgical resection at Peking Union Medical College Hospital were enrolled. The clinical, radiological and pathological data of the enrolled patients were collected and analyzed. Preoperative systemic inflammatory parameters were calculated as previously reported. Results: Eighty-six patients with IPMN-INV met the inclusion criteria. The lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) was the only systemic inflammatory parameter independently associated with the cancer-specific survival (CSS). An LMR higher than 3.5 was significantly associated with a favorable CSS in univariate (hazard ratio (HR) 0.305, P = 0.003) and multivariate analyses (HR 0.221, P = 0.001). Other independently prognostic factors included the presence of clinical symptoms, cyst size, N stage and tumor differentiation. Additionally, a model including LMR was established for the prognosis prediction of IPMN-INV and had a C-index of 0.809. Conclusions: Preoperative LMR could serve as a feasible prognostic biomarker for IPMN-INV. A decreased LMR (cutoff value of 3.5) was an independent predictor of poor survival for IPMN-INV.
