TY - JOUR AU - Windsor, John A. AU - Barreto, Savio George PY - 2017 TI - The concept of ‘borderline resectable’ pancreatic cancer: limited foundations and limited future? JF - Journal of Gastrointestinal Oncology; Vol 8, No 1 (February 2017): Journal of Gastrointestinal Oncology Y2 - 2017 KW - N2 - Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is traditionally treated by a surgery-first approach. The development and adoption of the concept of borderline resectable PDAC, which extends the role of surgery, is based on the proposition that neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) will increase the resection rate, margin negative rate and overall survival. There are a number of issues with this concept and a critical review of these suggests that it is based on limited foundations and likely has a limited future.
