Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effectivity of the Whipple at the Splenic Artery [ Time Frame: By CT scan at 8 weeks post surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine how effective Whipple at the Splenic Artery (WATSA) is at resecting tumors with negative microscopic margins (R0) at the resection line on the pancreas and at the tangential posterior, uncinate, and venous margins.

  • To determine range of morbidity and mortality [ Time Frame: 30 day postoperative mortality ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine if Whipple at the splenic artery can be performed within the usual range of morbidity and mortality (30 day postoperative mortality) for a standard a Whipple procedure.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival/recurrence at 2 years [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine the survival/recurrence rates at 2 years.

  • Effect of occlusion of the splenic vein at the confluence. [ Time Frame: By CT scan at 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine the effect of occlusion of the splenic vein at the confluence.

Whipple Surgery at the Splenic Artery
Whipple at the Splenic Artery (WATSA) is at resecting tumors with negative microscopic margins (R0) at the resection line on the pancreas and at the tangential posterior, uncinate, and venous margins.
Procedure: Whipple at the Splenic Artery (WATSA)

Detailed Description:

Primary

The primary objective of this registry study is to collect clinical data from patients who undergo the WATSA procedure. Specific hypotheses to be tested are

  • To determine how effective Whipple at the Splenic Artery (WATSA) is at resecting tumors with negative microscopic margins (R0) at the resection line on the pancreas and at the tangential posterior, uncinate, and venous margins.
  • To determine if WATSA can be performed within the usual range of morbidity and mortality (30 day postoperative mortality) for a standard a Whipple procedure.

Secondary

The secondary objectives of this registry study are to

  • To determine the survival/recurrence rates at 2 years.
  • To determine the effect of occlusion of the splenic vein at the confluence.
