Clinicodemographic aspect of resectable pancreatic cancer and prognostic factors for resectable cancer
World Journal of Surgical Oncology, 05/07/2012
Chiang KC et al. – Besides traditional imaging studies, preoperative CA 19–9 levels and tumor size can also be used to determine the resectability of Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PCA). Better nutritional status, curative resection, early tumor stage and well–differentiated tumors predict the favorable prognosis of PCA patients after resection.
