MiniAn international survey of high-volume pancreas cancer surgeons revealed wide variations in management preferences, attitudes regarding contraindications to surgery, and the propensity to offer exploration. When presented with 6 hypothetical clinical vignettes using details from real patients th

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is limited high-level evidence to guide locally advanced pancreas cancer (LAPC) management. Recent work shows that surgeons' preferences in LAPC management vary broadly. We sought to examine whether surgeon volume was associated with attitudes regarding LAPC management. METHODS An electronic survey was distributed by email to an international cohort of pancreas surgeons to evaluate practice patterns regarding LAPC management. Clinical vignette-based questions evaluat...

The optimal type of operative drainage following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) remains unclear. Our objective is to investigate risk associated with closed drainage techniques (passive [gravity] vs. suction) after PD. We assessed operative drainage techniques utilized in patients undergoing PD in the ACS-NSQIP pancreas-targeted database from 2016 to 2018. Using multivariable logistic regression to adjust for characteristics of the patient, procedure, and pancreas, we examined the association betw...

BACKGROUND The use of neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is increasing. While there is an association between NAT and improved post-pancreatectomy complication rates in limited patient populations, the strength of the relationship and its applicability to a broader and modern pancreatectomy cohort remains unclear. METHODS We used the 2014-2018 American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project to evaluate NAT use for PDAC patients underg...

Gallbladder cancer is the most common biliary tract malignancy. Margin-clearing surgery is a cornerstone of gallbladder cancer management, but several aspects of surgical management are controversial. This review will discuss the current state of surgical management for gallbladder cancer as well as aspects of gallbladder surgery that remain debated, including operative extent, lymphadenectomy extent, and management of incidentally discovered gallbladder cancer.

: Up to 25% of patients with colorectal cancer present with simultaneous metastases and the liver is frequently the only metastatic site. This review will review treatment sequence planning considerations-including metastatic burden, primary tumor site, chemotherapy response, and ability to perform minimally invasive surgery-for patients with simultaneous resectable colorectal liver metastases. In addition, this review will address conversion chemotherapy, combined vs staged surgeries, and their...
