Total mesopancreas excision (TMpE) for pancreatic head cancer: analysis of 120 cases %K %X Objective: To evaluate the feasibility and safety of total mesopancreas excision (TMpE) in the treatment of pancreatic head cancer. Methods: The clinical and pathological data of 120 patients with pancreatic head cancer who had undergone TMpE in our center from May 2010 to January 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. Results: The mean operative time was (275±50.2) min and the average intra-operative blood loss was (390±160.5) mL. Post-operative complications were reported in 45 patients, while no peri-operative death was noted. The specimen margins were measured in three dimensions, and 86 patients (71.6%) achieved R0 resection. Conclusions: TMpE is safe and feasible for pancreatic head cancer and is particularly helpful to increase the R0 resection rate. %U http://cjcr.amegroups.com/article/view/6753 %P %@ 1993-0631
