Abstract
Pancreatic cancer is on the third place among gastrointestinal cancers and affect about 200 new patients yearly in Slovenia. Results of treatment are discouraging on national level (resectability 10-15%, 5-year survival rate of resected patients under10%), but individual results of series from specialised centers or surgeons are better (resectability 30-40%, 5-year survival 20-30%). Pancreatic cancer is on the third place among gastrointestinal cancers and affect about 200 new patients yearly in Slovenia. Results of treatment are discouraging on national level (resectability 10-15%, 5-year survival rate of resected patients under10%), but individual results of series from specialised centers or surgeons are better (resectability 30-40%, 5-year survival 20-30%). Data about our patients are collected with protocols prepared for statistical analysis (anamnestic, clinical, intraoperative, pathologic, follow up), regular out-patients control and through the Cancer Registry of Slovenia. In the framework of dealing with the patients with pancreatic cancer contemporary principles of preoperative staging (laparoscopy), differentiated treatment (palliative endoscopic, radical surgery) and contemporary oncological treatment. In 5-year series we intend to include 200 to 250 patients with pancreatic cancer(period 1998-2002) what represent large enough series for statistical analysis of prospectively collected data. Proposed research project is a continuation of our project <Surgery for gastrointestinal cancer - comparison of gastric and colorectal cancer< with extension on the field of pancreatic cancer. Within the framework of the priject we included till the end od year 2000 1520 patients with gastric cancer and analysed 1260 patients who underwnt a resection from the period 1983-1997. At the same time we included 1045 patients with colorectal cancer and analysed 731 patients who underwent a resection from the period 1992-1997. Results were presented and published.
