Abstract

Pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with portal vein resection is increasingly accepted as a viable treatment option for pancreatic carcinoma with suspected involvement of the portal vein.However, its clinical benefit remains controversial. This study evaluated the outcomes of pancreaticoduodenectomy with portal vein resection for pancreatic carcinoma in a group of Chinese patients operated on by a specialized team in a center with a low case volume of pancreatic cancer. The perioperative and long-term outcomes of 12 patients with portal vein resection for suspected involvement of the portal vein and 38 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy without portal vein resection during the same period were compared. In the former group, eight patients underwent segmental resection, and four patients underwent wedge resection of the portal vein. There were no significant differences in operative blood loss (median 0.8 vs. 0.8 liter, p = 0.313), hospital mortality (0% vs. 2.6%, p = 1.000), or operative morbidity (41.7% vs. 42.1%, p = 0.979) between the two groups. Patients who required portal vein resection had higher frequencies of microscopic lymphatic permeation (58.3% vs. 18.4%, p = 0.023) and vascular invasion (50.0% vs. 15.8%, p = 0.025). Long-term survival was comparable between patients with portal vein resection and those without it (median 19.5 vs. 20.7 months, p = 0.769). These findings suggest that pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with portal vein resection can be performed safely by a specialized team in a center with a low case volume of pancreatic carcinoma and that it may offer survival benefit in patients with suspected portal vein involvement.
