Abstract

Pancreatic resection for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most complex procedures in abdominal surgery due to the technical and oncological challenges given by its local aggressive growth. The improvement of new multidrug chemotherapy regimens and surgical techniques has increased the caseload of “borderline resectable” (BR) or even “locally advanced” (LA) PDAC candidates for surgical resection. As a result, the increased heterogeneity of surgical scenarios has made it essential to utilize a tailored surgical strategy for each individual case. Notably, the strategy employed to approach and assess the peripancreatic vessels should be weighted according to tumor’s location and the site of suspected vascular infiltration. The aim of this paper is to describe the open surgical approach for “BR” or “LA” PDAC used at our Institution and summarizes a “step-up approach” to manage vascular infiltration.
