Abstract

Treatment of patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer remains a challenge, and the exact role of surgery with vascular resection remains unclear. Several studies on selected patient populations have addressed the problem, but with varying results. Although venous resection may be performed without increased morbidity and mortality, the majority of studies found no improved long-term survival when compared to oncological treatment.
