- The clinical course of 122 patients with pancreatic cancer seen at Seoul National
University Hospital were analysed dividing into two periods: 1975-78 and 1979-82.
In respect to the more imporved diagnostic tools such as ultrasonography(US) and computed
tomography(CT), the sensitivity of US behind CT, as 65% for US and 90% for CT.
We didn't find any significant change of survival between two periods.
For the resectable cases we prefer Whipple's operation rather than total pancreatectomy,
because the latter produces more morbidity and no significant prologation of survival. We
did not routinely perform dual bypass procedure when doing bypass surgery in patients with
As for the prognostic factors, tumor size below 2 ern, negative capsular and major vessels
invasion showed a trend toward a good prognosis.
