Description

Pancreatectomy is the surgical removal of all or a part of the pancreas. It is the most effective treatment for cancer of the pancreas, an abdominal organ that secretes digestive enzymes, insulin, and other hormones.

While surgical removal of tumors in the pancreas is preferred, it is only possible in the 10-15% of patients who arediagnosed early enough for a potential cure.

Depending on part of pancreas removed, the procedure can be categorized into

  • Total Pancreatectomy, in which case the entire organ is removed, usually along with the spleen, gallbladder, common bile duct, and portions of the small intestine and stomach.
  • Distal Pancreatectomy, meaning that only the body and tail of the pancreas are removed, leaving the head of the organ attached.
  • Whipple Procedure: When the duodenum is removed along with all or part of the pancreas, the procedure is called a Pancreaticoduodenectomy or Whipple's procedure.
Pre-Procedure

Patients with symptoms undergo some tests before the surgery is considered. These are

  • Ultrasonography
  • X-Ray Examinations
  • Computed Tomography Scans (CT scan)
  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Such tests are required to establish a correct diagnosis for the pancreatic disorder and in the planning the surgery.

Since many patients with pancreatic cancer are undernourished, appropriate nutritional support, sometimes by tube feedings, may be required prior to surgery.

Some patients with pancreatic cancer deemed suitable for a Pancreatectomy will also undergo chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
 

Post-Procedure

Pancreatectomy is major surgery. Therefore, extended hospitalization is usually required with an average hospital stay of 2 to 3 weeks.

Some pancreatic cancer patients may also receive combined chemotherapy and radiation therapy after surgery. This additional treatment has been clearly shown to enhance survival rates.

After surgery, patients experience pain in the abdomen and are prescribed pain medication. Follow-up exams are required to monitor the patient's recovery and remove implanted tubes.

After a total Pancreatectomy, the body loses the ability to secrete insulin, enzymes, and other substances; therefore, the patient has to take supplements for the rest of life. Depending on the medical condition, a pancreas transplantation may be considered as an alternative for some patients.

Patients usually resume normal activities within a month. Doctor will suggest to avoid heavy lifting for six to eight weeks following surgery and not to drive as long as they take narcotic medication.
