Abstract null null Background/objectives null Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is an emerging treatment for locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) which in some cohorts has been associated with severe complications. Additionally, re-resection of isolated local recurrence (ILR) after pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) can improve survival. We investigated safety, feasibility and oncologic outcomes in the first report on open IRE for unresectable ILR of PDAC in a staged surgical approach...

Abstract null null Background null Surgical resection is the mainstay of potential cure for patients with pancreatic cancer, however, local recurrence is frequent. Previously, we have described an extended resection technique for pancreatoduodenectomy aiming at a radical resection of the nerve and lymphatic tissue between celiac artery, superior mesenteric artery and mesenteric-portal axis (TRIANGLE operation). Until now, data on postoperative outcome have not been reported, yet. null null null ...

Objective null Evaluation of the outcome after resection for distal bile duct cancer (DBC) with focus on the impact of microscopic histopathological resection status R0 (>1 mm) vs R1 (≤1 mm) vs R1 (direct). null Summary background data null DBC is a rare disease for which oncologic resection offers the only chance of cure. null Methods null Prospectively collected data of consecutive patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy for DBC were analyzed. Histopathological resection status was classif...

Abstract Background The feasibility and safety of minimally invasive enucleation (ME) for benign or borderline pancreatic tumors is still unclear. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes between ME and open enucleation (OE). Methods All patients undergoing pancreatic enucleation between October 2001 and January 2020 were analyzed from a prospective database. Consecutive patients undergoing ME were compared with patients undergoing OE in a matched-pair analysis (1:2). Results Of 358 patient...

Abstract Background Pancreatoduodenectomy is the standard treatment for pathologies of the pancreatic head and is performed routinely worldwide. The aim of the study was to analyze this procedure in terms of extent of surgery, technical difficulty, and clinical outcomes and thereby provide a standardized surgical categorization of pancreatoduodenectomies for future reference. Methods For this cohort study, all patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy at a single center within an 18-year peri...

Objective To develop and validate a pretreatment prognostic score in pancreatic cancer (PDAC). Background Pretreatment prognostication in PDAC is important for treatment decisions but remains challenging. Available prognostic tools are derived from selected cohorts of patients who underwent resection, excluding up to 20% of patients with exploration only, and do not adequately reflect the pretreatment scenario. Methods Patients undergoing surgery for PDAC in Heidelberg from 07/2006 to 06/2014 we...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the role of gastric venous congestion (GVC) in mortality after total pancreatectomy (TP). BACKGROUND Data from a nationwide administrative database revealed that TP is associated with a 23% mortality rate in Germany. METHODS A total of 585 consecutive patients who had undergone TP (n = 514) or elective completion pancreatectomy (n = 71) between January 2015 and December 2019 were analyzed. Univariable and multivariable analyses were performed to i...

: MINI: We analyzed prognostic factors after neoadjuvant therapy and resection in 280 patients with initially unresectable pancreatic cancer-the largest single-center study reported. We found that preoperative CA 19-9 levels, lymph node status, presence of distant metastases, and vascular involvement were all independent overall survival predictors, but not resection margin status. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of clinical and pathological parameters, including resection margin (R) status, o...

Abstract Background Marginal ulcer is a well-known complication after pancreatoduodenectomy. In light of increasing long-term survival after pancreatoduodenectomy, the identification of risk factors and preventive strategies are of utmost importance. We assessed the incidence, clinical impact, and potential risk factors of marginal ulcer after pancreatoduodenectomy. Methods A prospectively maintained database of patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy was analyzed retrospectively. Univariate a...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the perioperative and oncologic long-term outcomes of patients with LAPC after surgical resection at a high-volume center for pancreatic surgery. BACKGROUND The role of surgery in LAPC with arterial involvement is controversial. METHODS We analyzed 385 consecutive patients undergoing PAR (n = 195) or PAD (n = 190) of the encased artery for LAPC between January 1, 2003 and April 30, 2019. RESULTS There were 183 total pancreatectomies, 113 partial pancreatoduodenectomies, ...
