Pancreatic Cancer in brief

In this issue of Pancreatic Cancer in brief, we highlight the use of the state-of-the-art robotic Whipple procedure, or pancreaticoduodenectomy - a surgical procedure known to have a positive impact on survival. We feature a case study that follows a patient selected for this complex surgery.

Finally, we would like to make you aware of the Pancreatic Cancer Specialty Care Center, which provides a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating pancreatic cancer. Experts from surgical, medical, and radiation oncology are brought together to expedite the development and implementation of a treatment plan.

Approximately 42,470 new cases of pancreatic cancer developed in the United States in 2009, resulting in 35,240 deaths, making it the fourth most common cause of cancer-related deaths.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) as adjuvant therapy for resected pancreatic adenocarcinoma with close or positive margins.
