Patterns and predictors of failure after curative resections of pancreatic endocrine carcinoma Abstract #31

Introduction: Pancreatic endocrine carcinomas (PECs) are generally associated with a good prognosis, above all after radical resection. In other pancreatic malignancies, predictors of failure and the role of lymph node ratio (LNR) are well-known, but prognostic factors and the value of LNR, as well as patterns of recurrence after surgery for PEC has never been investigated.
Aim(s): To identify all possible prognostic factors associated with recurrence after radical resection of PECs.
Materials and methods: The prospective database from the Department of Surgery of the University of Verona was queried and all clinical and pathological data of patients with radically resected, pathologically confirmed PECs between 1990 and 2007 were reviewed. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed.
