BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Many surgeons perceive total pancreatectomy (TP) for pancreatic adenocarcinoma to be associated with inferior outcomes compared to partial pancreatectomy (PP), such as pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and distal pancreatectomy (DP). We sought to analyze peri-operative mortality and long-term survival following TP versus PP for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. METHODS The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was used to identify patients with resected… CONTINUE READING
