Purpose: Recent studies have suggested microscopic positive resection margin should be revised according to the presence of tumor cells within 1mm of the margin surface in resected specimens of pancreatic cancer. However, the clinical meaning of this revised margin status for R1 resection margin was not fully clarified. Methods: From July 2012 to December 2014, the medical records of 194 consecutive patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy for ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head were analyzed retrospectively. They were divided into 3 groups on margin status; revised microscopic negative margin (rR0) - tumor exists more than 1 mm from surgical margin, revised microscopic positive margin (rR1) - tumor present within less than 1 mm from surgical margin, classic microscopic positive margin (cR1) - tumor is exposed to surgical margin. Results: There were 76 rR0 (39.2%), 100 rR1 (51.5%), and 18 cR1 (9.3%). There was significant difference in disease-free survival rates between cR1 vs. rR1 (8.4 months vs. 24.0 months, P = 0.013). Margin status correlated with local recurrence rate (17.1% in rR0, 26.0% in rR1, and 44.4% in cR1, P = 0.048). There is significant difference in recurrence at tumor bed (11.8% in rR0 vs. 23.0 in rR1, P = 0.050). Of rR1, adjuvant treatment was found to be an independent risk factor for local recurrence (hazard ratio, 0.297; 95% confidence interval, 0.127-0.693, P = 0.005). Conclusion: Revised R1 resection margin (rR1) affects recurrence at the tumor bed. Adjuvant treatment significantly reduced local recurrence of rR1. Accordingly, adjuvant chemoradiation for rR1 group should be taken into account.

Background R0 resection rates (complete tumour removal with negative resection margins) in pancreatic cancer are 70–80 per cent when a 0-mm margin is used, declining to 15–24 per cent with a 1-mm margin. This review evaluated the R0 resection rates according to different margin definitions and techniques. Methods Three databases (MEDLINE from 1946, PubMed from 1946 and Embase from 1949) were searched to mid-October 2014. The search terms included ‘pancreatectomy OR pancreaticoduodenectomy’ and ‘...

Background This position statement was developed to expedite a consensus on definition and treatment for borderline resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (BRPC) that would have worldwide acceptability. Methods An international panel of pancreatic surgeons from well-established, high-volume centers collaborated on a literature review and development of consensus on issues related to borderline resectable pancreatic cancer. Results The International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery (ISGPS) ...

Background Surgical margin involvement is an important outcome after pancreatic cancer surgery; however, variation in pathologic review practices may limit its use as a quality indicator. Our objectives were to assess variation in hospital performance and the reliability of margin involvement after pancreatic cancer surgery.

Background Controversy persists as to whether positive operative margins are an independent prognostic factor for resected pancreatic cancer. This study evaluated the impact of the resection margin status on the patterns of recurrence and prognosis after resection for pancreatic cancer. Methods A total of 208 patients with pancreatic cancer who underwent resection with curative intent were studied retrospectively. All patients underwent pancreatectomy (164 pancreatoduodenectomies, 42 distal panc...

Introduction The poor overall survival associated with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) despite complete resection suggests that occult metastatic disease is present in most at the time of surgery. Resection margin involvement (R1) following resection is an established poor prognostic factor. However, the definition of an R1 resection varies and the impact of margin clearance on outcome has not been examined in detail.

AIMS: The UK definition of microscopic resection margin involvement (R1) in pancreatic head cancer, based on tumour lying <1 mm from the margin, has been adopted from rectal cancer, but has never been validated. The aim of this study was to assess the adequacy of the R1 definition for pancreatic head cancers by comparing the growth patterns of rectal (RC), pancreatic (PC), ampullary (AC) and distal bile duct (DBC) adenocarcinomas. METHODS AND RESULTS: Distances between tumour cells and tumour ce...

INTRODUCTION A positive microscopic margin (R1) following resection of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) can occur in up to 80% of patients and is associated with reduced survival and increased recurrence. Our aim was to characterize the impact of neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) on survival and recurrence in patients with PDAC following an R1 resection. METHODS A retrospective analysis of patients with PDAC who underwent pancreatectomy from 2008 to 2017 was performed. Patients were staged accord...

BACKGROUND The prognostic role of resection margins in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is debated. This study aimed to investigate the impact that global and individual resection margin status after pancreatic head resection for PDAC has on disease-free survival (DFS) and disease-specific survival (DSS). METHODS Surgical specimens of pancreaticoduodenectomy/total pancreatectomy performed for PDAC were examined with a standardized protocol. Surgical margin status (biliary, pancreatic neck...

Backgrounds/aims The comparative effectiveness of pylorus-resecting pancreaticoduodenectomy (PRPD) and pylorus- preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD) in pancreatic head cancer is still disputed. The aim of this study was to analyze the data obtained from a large, single center with PPPD compared with PRPD in terms of postoperative outcomes, including blood glucose levels and survival in patients with pancreatic head cancer. Methods Between January 2007 and December 2016, a total of 556 patie...
