OBJECTIVES The objective of the study was to verify if histopathological differentiation of ampullary carcinoma after surgical resection may be related to survival. METHODS The prognostic role of an accurate histological and immunohistochemical classification has been investigated in a multicentric series of carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater. Immunohistochemical expression of cytokeratin 7 (CK7) and CK20 were analyzed in the different morphological histotypes of ampullary cancers, and results… CONTINUE READING
