Whipple Resection FigureThe fourth part of Dr. Katz’s presentation covered what the surgery for pancreatic cancer entails, the most common complications from this challenging operation, and the critical importance of the experience of the surgical team. ¬†Especially for complex procedures like the “pancreaticoduodenectomy”, or Whipple resection, which is the required curative surgery surgery for pancreatic cancer, the experience of the medical team is remarkably important and correlated with the probability of long-term success.

Here’s the video and audio versions of the podcast, along with the transcript and figures for the program:

We’ll close the series by Dr. Katz with his discussion of the important role also of systemic therapy for even apparently localized pancreatic cancer, as he notes that even resectable pancreatic cancer is really a systemic disease that requires additional treatment. Look for that soon.
