Results of radical resection for periampullary cancer

Annals of Surgery
K W WarrenM Relihan


This report concerns 348 pancreatoduodenectomies, including 13 total pancreatectomies. Operative mortality over 30 years was 15%, operative mortality since 1962, 10%. Precise factors influencing operability, mortality, morbidity, and long-term palliation or cure are emphasized. The necessity for making a distinction among tumors arising in the ampulla of Vater, the intrapancreatic portion of the common bile duct, and the duodenum surrounding the papilla of Vater and carcinomas arising in the head of the pancreas is the most important factor in the approach to periampullary malignant tumors. Even with this large experience, the impression of the operating surgeon at the time of resection was incorrect in 10% of the patients in whom a reons who do not resect carcinomas arising in the head of the pancreas and who may have had less experience in this specialized field may be rejecting an even larger per cent of patients with more favorable periampullary malignant tumors. The influence of previous exploration, manipulation, and biopsy on morbidity, mortality, and survival is discussed. The significance of nodal involvement and residual tumor at the neck of the pancreas and the point of division of the common bile duct and the uncina...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.
