Abstract

This retrospective study by Tummala et al. aimed to analyse the impact of a complete (R0) resection, size of the tumour and peripancreatic lymph node metastases on survival in patients undergoing upfront surgery for pancreatic cancer. The authors divided their cohort of 154 patients treated over 10 years into those who underwent a complete curative or R0 resection (n=105 or 68%) and those in whom the pathological examination of the resection margin revealed the presence of cancer or R1 resections (n=49 or 32%).
