Recent reports have established the number of LN examined as a separate prognostic factor in many malignancies. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 128 patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreatic cancer and obtained information such as overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS), tumor characteristics, preoperative carbohydrate… CONTINUE READING
