Keywords: Extensive gastropancreatoduodenal resections | Ductal carcinoma of the head of pancreas

The aim of the investigation is to estimate short- and long-term results of the treatment of ductal adenocarcinoma of the head of pancreas after conventional and extensive pancreatoduodenal resection. Materials and methods. There were performed total 27 conventional and 27 extensive interventions. The groups under study were comparable by sex, age, and the degree of tumour differentiation. Mean time of surgery, the volume of blood loss and hemotransfusion, the frequency of postoperative complications, and mortality did not differ significantly. Results. After extensive pancreatoduodenal resection, local recurrence occurred significantly more rarely (7.4 versus 33.3% after conventional surgery). Broadened lymphadenectomy in ductal adenocarcinoma of the head of pancreas did not lead to the increase of postoperative complications, mortality and overall survival. In the meantime, extensive gastropancreatoduodenoal resection enables to decrease significantly recurrence rate.
