Indications, Techniques and Results in Major Vascular Resection for Pancreatic Cancer

Danilo Coco, Silvana Leanza

Pancreatic cancer ranks among many of the death causes linked to cancer. The average diagnostic scale of pancreatic cancer is around 31 mm & hasn't substantially changed in the past thirty years. The late-presenting indications were associated with poor early tumour diagnosis. Commonly used imaging techniques used in the pancreatic cancer diagnosis is Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Endoscopic Ultrasound, and Computer Topography. In the Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma treatment, vascular resection remains a topic of debate. Vascular resection should only be conducted on carefully selected subjects that have an proof for the occurrence of resectable tumours or borderline resectability tumours from the pre-operative imaging investigations. Resection at an early stage of pancreatic cancers is the best chance of cure. Venous resection and reconstruction have become a standard technique to achieve negative margins, and in complex venous resections/reconstructions, it is highly advisable to seek the help of experienced vascular surgeons.
