  • SummaryAdenocarcinoma involving the distal bile duct continues to have an overall poor prognosis.Through aggressive high tech preoperative work-up, a select group of patients will enjoy surgical benefit.High volume institutions like Riverside maintain an acceptable
  • Summary (cont.)5FU/XRT provides reasonable palliation for locally advanced tumors avoiding unnecessary laparotomy.Gemcitibine has low toxicity and can provide short term palliation in cases of systemic metastasis.EVS has opened new doors for pre-op staging and better direction for cystic pancreatic neoplasms.

  • 2007History


    Ultrasound dilated vs. non-dilated

    CT scan pancreatic protocol

    ~ 60% unresectable by CT scan

    40% further studies

  • Summary80% of distal bile duct obstructions are surgically incurable

    Technology & proper staging has significantly decreased unnecessary laparoscopy

    Almost all patients that are properly staged undergo definitive surgery

  • SummaryHigh volume institutions like Riverside have an acceptable morality such that even palliative whipple provides a good quality of life

    5 FU/XRT for locally advanced, Gemzar for systemic mets & wall stents are far superior to open biliary bypass.
