Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma with Isolated Venous Involvement: Is Neoadjuvant Treatment Worthy?

Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma with Isolated Venous Involvement: Is Neoadjuvant Treatment Worthy?

1. Abstract

Neoadjuvant Treatment (NAT) is indicated in locally advanced tumors and improves the results of subsequent surgery. In borderline tumors, the place of this preoperative treatment is more controversial, probably because borderline tumors are a heterogeneous group. We focused on the tumors with venous involvement without any arterial involvement and studied the results of neoadjuvant treatment in this particular group.
