Clinical and pathological prognostic factors after resection for pancreatic cancer

by Perini, Marcos Vinicius

Abstract (Summary)
The aim of the present study is to correlate clinical and pathological finding with survival in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma treated with surgical resection. Fifty six patients ressected were studied retrospectively. There were 32 females (57,1%) and 24 males (42,8%) with mean age of 58,1 years. Pylorus preserving duodenopancreatectomy were performed in 51,8%, followed by classical duodenopancreatectomy (41,1%), distal pancreatectomy (3,6%) and total pancreatectomy (3,6%). Four patients were stage IA, seven stage IB, 12 stage IIA, 29 stage IIB and two stage III. Mean survival was 20,7 months. It was concluded that sex, pro-trombin time reduction, portal vein resection, tumor differentiation and peri-neural invasion are statistically associated with survival
