The optimal intraoperative strategy for this group is not known. Some patients experience early recurrence of the cancer indicating undetected advanced disease at the time of surgery. We need tools to detect these patients, who do not benefit from surgery. Pancreatic surgery is still associated with a high burden of complications, postoper... more
