Lymph node status is one of the most important predictors of survival in resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma; therefore, thorough lymph node evaluation is a critical assessment in pancreatoduodenectomy specimens. There is considerable variability in pancreatoduodenectomy specimens processed histologically. This study compares two approaches of lymph node dissection and evaluation (standard vs orange peeling) of pancreatoduodenectomy specimens. A different approach to dissection of… CONTINUE READING
