Abstract

The results observed in 146 patients with carcinoma of the pancreas and periampullary region are described. Palliative procedures designed to relieve biliary and gastrointestinal obstruction were associated with an operative mortality of 16% and the vast majority of patients were dead within two years. Pancreatoduodenectomy was associated with an operative mortality of 26% but a five year survival rate of 16%. On the basis of experience the authors have concluded that pancreatoduodenectomy should continue to be performed in carefully selected patients with carcinoma of the head of the pancreas and periampullary region.
