AIM Angiogenesis is required for tumour growth. Its evaluation, by intratumoural microvessel density (IMD), has prognostic significance in many solid tumours. There is controversy regarding its use in pancreatic cancer and little is known about its role in ampullary tumours. The aim is to study IMD as a prognostic marker in resected ductal adenocarcinomas of head of pancreas and cancers of the ampullary region. METHODS Forty-seven patients (23 pancreatic and 24 ampullary, mean age 62.0 years… CONTINUE READING
