Biology Meets Technique: to Operate or Not to Operate in Pancreatic Cancer
For this session, we will evaluate the different treatment paradigms and their evolution. We will explore the most recent advances in pancreatic cancer treatment and focus on the impact of patient and tumor biology on the different therapeutic options. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, pre-habilitation and surgical strategies will be explored. This session is intended for HPB and surgical oncology specialists, and general surgeons treating pancreatic diseases.
- Identify patients who may benefit from preoperative oncologic treatment for pancreatic cancer.
- Select the most appropriate strategy in patients with borderline resectable and locally advanced pancreatic cancer after oncologic treatment.
- Recognize patient or tumor factors impacting on treatment outcomes for pancreatic cancer.
