Cytopathologic Margin Evaluation in Patients Undergoing Pancreatic Cancer Resection
I. To compare margin status on final pathology with margin status from cytopathologic
Patients undergo cytopathologic sample collection during pancreatic resection during which
slides are gently pressed against the cut edge of the pancreas, the surgical bed, and along
the superior mesenteric artery, and finally against the tumor itself.
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Local recurrence at the site of resection
Will be evaluated in a Cox proportion hazards regression model. The prognostic ability of the histological reporting of the specimen margin as well as the cytopathological reporting of the specimen and in situ margins will be evaluated.
