Dr. Matthew Katz on the Role of Systemic Therapy for Even Apparently Localized Pancreatic Cancer

Dr. Matthew Katz, pancreatic cancer expert surgeon at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, finished his comprehensive webinar presentation on management of potentially resectable pancreatic cancer with a discussion of the need for systemic therapy (in this setting, chemotherapy) alongside “local” treatments that focus on the location of the primary cancer, such as surgery and/or radiation.  Chemotherapy is considered a beneficial component in the management of nearly all cases of pancreatic cancer, even when the scans and eyes of the surgeon indicate there is no evidence of the cancer outside of the area resected.  

In this last podcast from his talk, Dr. Katz summarizes the standard approach of surgery followed by chemo or chemo/radiation, or the alternative they tend to favor at MD Anderson of the systemic therapy being delivered prior to planned surgery afterward.   Here are the video and audio versions of the podcast along with the transcript and figures.

Dr. Katz on Surgery for Pancreatic Cancer, Common Complications, and Importance of Surgical Volume

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:
