Pancreatic cancer surgery
Dr. Naimish Mehta -9811350626 The Whipple Procedure, or pancreaticoduodenectomy, is the most commonly performed surgery to remove tumors in the pancreas. In a standard Whipple procedure, the surgeon removes the head of the pancreas, the gallbladder, part of the duodenum which is the uppermost portion of the small intestine, a small portion of the stomach called the pylorus, and the lymph nodes near the head of the pancreas. The surgeon then reconnects the remaining pancreas and digestive organs so that pancreatic digestive enzymes, bile, and stomach contents will flow into the small intestine during digestion. In another type of Whipple procedure known as pylorus preserving Whipple, the bottom portion of the stomach, or pylorus, is not removed. In both cases, the surgery usually lasts between 5-8 hours.After a Whipple procedure, the most common complication is delayed gastric emptying, a condition in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents. Usually, after 7-10 days the stomach begins to work properly. If delayed gastric emptying persists, supplemental feedings by a feeding tube may be started. The condition usually lasts for another 7-10 days, but could last as long as a few weeks. The most serious potential complication is abdominal infection due to leakage where the pancreas has been connected to the intestine. This occurs in approximately 10% of patients and is usually managed by a combination of draining tubes, antibiotics, and supplemental tube feedings. Patients who have undergone the Whipple procedure may experience long-term effects including digestive difficulties. Emboss Entertainment Pvt.Ltd.

Treatment of localised and locally advanced esophageal cancer
In this video, CancerBro will explain treatment for non metastatic esophageal cancer. Video Transcript: First we will discuss the treatment for localized esophageal cancer. Earlier stages of esophageal cancer are carcinoma in situ (Tis) and T1a. Endoscopic mucosal resection is the technique which is used for treatment of Tis and T1a disease. This procedure is performed through an endoscope, in which first a fluid is injected the lesion, and then lesion is removed from surrounding structures. As you can see in the figure, only the superficial cancerous portion is removed, while the remaining tissue remains unaffected. Esophagectomy or removal of esophagus is also an option for early stage disease, but is practiced less commonly. As you can see in the figure, in esophagectomy, most of the esophagus is removed. And the stomach is pulled up to be joined to the remaining part of the esophagus. Now we come to the treatment for T1b disease, or the disease that infiltrates into the submucosa, without the involvement of lymph nodes. For T1b disease without lymph nodes involvement, esophagectomy is the preferred treatment. Now, we will discuss the treatment for T2 or T3 disease. That is, the disease which has infiltrated into muscularis propria or serosa. And for the treatment for esophageal cancer, which has spread to the regional lymph nodes. In these cases, sugery alone may not be sufficient for the treatment, so different combination of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are used. Cancerbro, how it is decided what combination of modalities to be used? It is decided by oncologist on an individual basis, depending upon the exact stage of the disease, the comborbidities and the performance status of the patient. Now we come to the treatment for T4 disease, in which the disease extends to involve the adjacent structures. In this figure, the disease has extended to involve the heart or pericardium. And here, the cancer has spread to the great vessels of the heart. Here, it invades the lungs or pleora. And here, the cancer has infiltrated into the diaphragm. And here it has spread to the trachea. In some cases of T4 disease, surgery may not be possible, so a combinaton of chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be used. And if it is possible, then surgical resection of the tumor, with or without chemotherapy and radiation therapy is done. In T4 disease also, the decision to do surgery or not, and to give chemotherapy or radiotherapy is taken by the oncologist on an individual patient basis after assessing the exact stage of the disease and understanding the comorbidities and the performance status of the patient.

*NEW* Whipple Procedure (Pancreaticoduodenectomy) - Pancreatic Cancer scar
One week after operation to remove tumour.. Among common cancers, pancreatic cancer has one of the poorest prognoses. Because pancreatic cancer often grows and spreads long before it causes any symptoms, only about 6% of patients are still alive five years after diagnosis. For some pancreatic patients, however, a complex surgery known as the Whipple procedure may extend life and could be a potential cure. Those who undergo a successful Whipple procedure may have a five-year survival rate of up to 25%. The classic Whipple procedure is named after Allen Whipple, MD, a Columbia University surgeon who was the first American to perform the operation in 1935. Also known as pancreaticoduodenectomy, the Whipple procedure involves removal of the "head" (wide part) of the pancreas next to the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). It also involves removal of the duodenum, a portion of the common bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes part of the stomach. Afterward, surgeons reconnect the remaining intestine, bile duct, and pancreas Who Is a Candidate for the Whipple Procedure? Only about 20% of pancreatic cancer patients are eligible for the Whipple procedure and other surgeries. These are usually patients whose tumors are confined to the head of the pancreas and haven't spread into any nearby major blood vessels, the liver, lungs, or abdominal cavity. Intensive testing is usually necessary to identify possible candidates for the Whipple procedure. Some patients may be eligible for a minimally invasive (laparoscopic) Whipple procedure, which is performed through several small incisions instead of a single large incision. Compared to the classic procedure, the laparoscopic procedure may result in less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, a quicker recovery, and fewer complications. The Whipple procedure isn't an option for the 40% of newly diagnosed patients whose tumors have spread (metastasized) beyond the pancreas. Only rarely is it an option for the 40% of patients with locally advanced disease that has spread to adjacent areas such as the superior mesenteric vein and artery, or for those whose tumors have spread to the body or tail of the pancreas. Who Should Perform the Whipple Procedure? The Whipple procedure can take several hours to perform and requires great surgical skill and experience. The area around the pancreas is complex and surgeons often encounter patients who have a variation in the arrangement of blood vessels and ducts. CONTINUED After the Whipple procedure was introduced, many surgeons were reluctant to perform it because it had a high death rate. As recently as the 1970s, up to 25% of patients either died during the surgery or shortly thereafter. Since then, improvements in diagnosis, staging, surgical techniques, anesthesia, and postoperative care have reduced the short-term death rate to less than 4% in patients whose operation is performed at cancer centers by experienced surgeons. At some major centers, the reported death rate is less than 1%. But the rate may still be above 15% in patients who are treated at small hospitals or by less experienced surgeons. Because the Whipple procedure continues to be one of the most demanding and risky operations for surgeons and patients, the American Cancer Society says it's best to have the procedure done at a hospital that performs at least 15 to 20 pancreas surgeries per year. The organization also recommends choosing a surgeon who does many such operations. What Are Complications of the Whipple Procedure? Immediately after the Whipple procedure, serious complications can affect many patients. One of the most common of these include the development of false channels (fistulas) and leakage from the site of the bowel reconnection. Other possible surgical complications include: Infections Bleeding Trouble with the stomach emptying itself after meals After surgery, patients are usually hospitalized for a week before returning home. Because recovery can be slow and painful, they usually need to take prescription or over-the-counter pain medications. At first, patients can eat only small amounts of easily digestible food. They may need to take pancreatic enzymes -- either short-term or long-term -- to assist with digestion. Diarrhea is a common problem during the two or three months it usually takes for the rearranged digestive tract to fully recover. Prognosis After the Whipple Procedure Overall, the five-year survival rate after a Whipple procedure is about 20 to 25%. Even if the procedure successfully removes the visible tumor, it's possible that some cancer cells have already spread elsewhere in the body, where they can form new tumors and eventually cause death.

Blend of imaging, treatments allows removal of "inoperable" pancreatic cancer
A select number of high-risk pancreatic cancer patients initially deemed inoperable are, in fact, eligible for surgery and have a chance for a cure, thanks to a treatment protocol pioneered at MD Anderson. The protocol combines a more accurate reading of CT scans, the use of chemo-radiation upfront and an advanced surgical resection of the pancreas and removal and reconstruction of appropriate blood vessels. Jason Fleming, M.D., associate professor in the Department of Surgical Oncology and the study's lead author, says that collaboration between surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists is also paramount. Adenocarcinoma of the pancreas is the most common and lethal type of the disease, with a five-year survival rate of just 5%. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 43,920 new cases of pancreatic cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2012, with approximately 37,390 deaths expected. Surgical removal of the pancreas, known as the Whipple procedure, is a patient's best chance for survival, yet, currently, just 20% of patients are eligible for the high risk procedure. Published in the Journal of American College of Surgeons, the MD Anderson study enrolled 88 high-risk pancreatic cancer patients from 1990-2010. All were initially told at outside institutions that they were surgical candidates; however, upon opening, their tumors were deemed more extensive and, thus, inoperable. They then were referred to MD Anderson for care. Of these 88 patients, 66 were able to complete the MD Anderson protocol regimen, culminating with the removal of their tumor. In surgical patients, the median survival was 29.6 months, compared to 10.6 months and 5.1 months in those with locally advanced disease at their time of referral or those who developed metastatic disease before resection, respectively. "This exciting news was that of the 88 patients, 60 percent could have their tumor successfully removed, even though they had had surgery before and it was deemed unresectable, or not removable," said Fleming. "Even more exciting to us is that the survival of those patients who can have surgery here is the same as our group of patients that we do surgery first."

Dr. Howard Reber on Surgical Management of Pancreatic Cancer
Dr. Reber reviewed the current principles underlying the management of pancreatic cancer. In 2014 over 46,000 new cases are expected to occur in the USA, and almost 40,000 people will die. The incidence of the disease continues to increase by about 1% a year, and by the year 2020, deaths from pancreatic cancer will be second only to those from lung cancer in this country. 85% of new cases are advanced at the time of diagnosis (designated Stage III or IV disease) and these patients are rarely operated upon. Even those with Stage I or II disease (termed "early") who are candidates for resection, have more advanced disease than is evident. Thus, although some of these patients are cured by surgical resection and chemotherapy, the median survival of most of them is less than 2 years because the cancer recurs. The specific features of each of the common operations for pancreatic cancer were explained. The standard Whipple operation or the Pylorus preserving Whipple are done for tumors in the head of the pancreas; a distal pancreatectomy that includes the spleen is done for body and tail of pancreas cancers. The operations today are done quite safely with so-called operative mortality rates at UCLA less than 1%; the 5-year survival rates are over 30%. Some time was spent describing the current management of patients with Stage III disease where the tumor is locally advanced and involves some of the major blood vessels. These patients are treated with chemotherapy and some of them respond so well to that treatment that the tumor regresses to the point where surgery and even cure becomes possible. Dr. Reber explained that further major advances in how the surgery is done are unlikely, but that improvements in survival are likely as surgery is combined with newer drugs or advances that permit earlier diagnosis.

Results of the combined inhibition of IDO1 and PD-L1 in locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors
Howard A. Burris, MD, FASCO from the Sarah Cannon Research Institute, Nashville, TN, summarizes the Phase I trial of the combination of inhibitors of IDO1 (GDC-0919) and PD-L1 (atezolizumab) in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors. Dr Burris explains that blocking IDO1 leads to a more favorable environment for immunotherapy. This response was seen in various tumor types, such as melanoma, pancreatic, ovarian and prostate cancer, with durable and long-lasting benefits. Recorded at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2017 Annual Meeting held in Chicago, IL.

Treatment of Localised/Locally advanced bladder cancer
Today, CancerBro will explain non metastatic bladder cancer treatment. Watch the video to know how non metastatic bladder cancer is treated by oncologists. Also, read more about Treatment of Localised/Locally advanced bladder cancer HERE. https://www.cancerbro.com/bladder-cancer-treatment/ Video Transcript: We will first discuss the treatment for Localised bladder cancer. In this technique, a hallow tube called as cystoscope which is fitter with a camera is inserted into urethera and is slowly advanced into bladder. It helps to confirm the presence of bladder tumor and see its location, number and extent. Also, it helps in transurethral resection of bladder tumor which is both diagnostic and therapeutic. As you can see in this figure, only the cancer containing superficial layers are removed, without damaging the deeper layers. After TURBT, the hispathology reports tells us whether the tumor is non muscle invasive or muscle invasive, i.e., whether it has infiltrated the muscle or not. We will first discuss the treatment for non muscle invasive bladder tumors. Tis is carcinoma in situ which is a flat tumor, limited to epitherlium. Intravesical chemotherapy should be given in all cases of Tis disease. As you can see in the figure, in this procedure the chemotherapy drug is directly instilled into the bladder, with the help of a catheter. And Ta is the papillary tumor which is limited to the epithelium. For Ta disease also, intravesical chemotherapy may be given. But in some cases, intravesical chemotherapy may not be required, when we can keep the patient under observation. When the tumor infiltrates into the lamina propria, it is called as T1. For T1 disease, the treatment depends on whether the tumor is low grade or high grade. Intravesical chemotherapy is the treatment of choice for low grade tumors. Whereas, for high grade tumors, the prefered modality of treatment is cystectomy or surgical resection of bladder. When it infiltrates into the inner muscle layer, it is called as T2a. And T2b, when it infiltrates the outer muscle layer. For T2 disease with nodes negative, the prefered modality of treatment is chemotherapy followed by cystectomy. Usually, the cystectomy is radical cystectomy in which whole bladder is removed. But in highly selected cases we can do partial cystectomy also. But for non cystectomy candidates in which we are not planning for surgery, a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be used. But the final decision whether to do surgery or not, or to do total or partial cystectomy will be taken by the oncologist, on an individual patient basis, depending upon exact stage of the disease, number and location of bladder tumors, and co-morbidities and performance status of the patient. With this we come to the end of the treatment of localised bladder tumors, now let's come to the treatment of locally advanced bladder tumors. Till T2, the tumor is limited to the bladder wall. But when the tumor infiltrates through the bladder wall to involve the perivesical tissue, it is called T3. And in T4 disease, the tumor infiltrates through the bladder wall to involve the adjacent structures. It may extend downwards to infiltrate prostate gland in males, as you can see in this figure. Whereas in femals, it may extend posteriorly to involve uterus or vagina. For T3 disease, and selected patients of T4 disease, as discussed above, with nodes negative, the preferred modality of treatment is cystectomy, with chemotherapy, which may be given before or after surgery. But for non-cystectomy candidates, in which we are not planning surgery, a combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy maybe used. Tumor may also extend anterolaterally, to involve or abdominal wall. This figure shows the pelvic and iliac group of lymph nodes, which are the regional nodes for bladder. Depending upon the number and location of the nodes involved, it can be N1, N2 or N3. In selected patients of T4 disease, with abdominal or pelvic wall extension, and any patient with node positive disease, the preferred modality of treatment is chemotherapy, with or without radiation therapy. And further therapy maybe decided depending upon the response to initial treatment. CancerBro is also active on most social media channels.

Non-metastatic pancreatic cancer treatment explained by CancerBro
In this video, CancerBro will explain the treatment for non-metastatic pancreatic cancer. Also, read more about Non-metastatic pancreatic cancer treatment explained by CancerBro. https://www.cancerbro.com/pancreatic-cancer-treatment/ Video Transcript: Now we will discuss the resectability of the pancreatic tumor, depending upon the extent of tumor. Tumor located within the pancreas, without extension to adjacent structutes, is considered to be resectable. This figure shows a resectable tumor located in the head of pancreas. Similarly, this is a resectable tumor located in the tail of pancreas. A tumor located in the head of the pancreas, that extends to involve the duodenum, is also considered to be resectable. Similarly, tumors arising from the tail of pancreas, that involve the spleen, left kidney, or left suprarenal gland, may also be resected. Superior mesenteric vein involvement maybe considered resectable, boderline resectable or unresectable, depending upon the extent of arterial involvement. Similarly, involvement of portal vein maybe considered resectable, borderline resectable or unresectable, depending upon the extent of arterial involvement. Infiltration of tumor into common hepatic artery only, is borderline resectable in most of the cases. Infiltration of tumor into the superior mesentric artery maybe considered borderline resectable or unresectable, depending upon the extent of arterial involvement. Celiac artery involvement may also be borderline resectable or unresectable, depending upon the extent of arterial involvement. Now we will discuss the treatment for all the three, that is resectable, borderline resectable, and unresectable disease. Surgery is the treatment of choice of resectable disease, but chemotherapy may be added rarely for some high risk patients. For borderline resectable patients, chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy is used, and then the decision for surgery is taken, depending upon the response to treatment. And for unresectable patients, chemotherapy is the treatment of choice, and radiotherapy maybe used very rarely. The final decision is taken by the oncologist, on an individual patient basis, depending upon the performance status of the patient and exact stage of the disease.
