Pancreatic cancer: Minimally invasive treatments and possible links to GI diseases
Date:5/3/2010

with other available treatments for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer with unresectable tumors.

In addition to increased survival, SRS has many advantages over currently recommended treatments for locally advanced, unresectable pancreatic cancers. SRS is delivered in three portions over two to five days, rather than conventional radiation therapy delivered over six to eight weeks, and patients experience less recovery time and an immediate return to normal activity. Conventional radiation therapy also exposes surrounding organs to high levels of radiation and its side effects.

"Stereotactic radiosurgery might be considered a substitute for surgery for patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer," said Dr. Didolkar. "We have seen very encouraging results for this treatment in patients with inoperable pancreatic cancer."

Study results need to be replicated in larger centers to confirm the results.

Dr. Didolkar will present these data on Monday, May 3 at 11 a.m. CT in 244-245, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
