|Pancreatic Cancer||Procedure: Transgastric endoscopic peritoneoscopy.||Early Phase 1|
We propose to investigate the efficacy of transgastric endoscopic peritoneoscopy with endoscopic biopsy in patients undergoing diagnostic laparoscopy and who will require a concurrent gastrotomy for placement of a PEG, gastrojejunostomy or gastric resection.
We hypothesize that diagnostic endoscopic peritoneoscopy can be done safely with adequate visualization of the abdominal cavity to direct clinical treatment.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|

Patients with pancreatic cancer who will proceed to a Whipple procedure.
Procedure: Transgastric endoscopic peritoneoscopy.
Exploration of the abdominal area
- 1) That transgastric endoscopic peritoneoscopy is feasible. [ Time Frame: 4/12 ]
