Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) disseminate from the primary tumor and travel through the bloodstream and lymphatic system. The detection of and/or increase in the number of CTCs during a patient’s clinical course may be a harbinger of forthcoming overt metastasis. We aimed to examine the impact of 2 different surgical techniques, standard (ST) pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and no-touch isolation (NT) PD, on tumor behavior and outcome in patients with pancreatic cancer by using CTCs as biomarkers… CONTINUE READING
