Of 150 patients, pancreatoduodenectomy were performed in 53 cases but one had total pancreactomy, with a total resection rate of 36%. respectability was high in ampulla and duodenal papilla cancers, with a resection rate of 89.5% and 83.3%, respectively. The lowest resection rate, 14.1%, was in patients with cancer in head of the pancreas. Twenty cases had postoperative complications, the morbidity rate was 13.3%. Postoperative death occurred in 9 cases with a mortality rate of 6%. The follow-up results showed that the 3-year and 5-year survival rates of the resection group were 31.8% and 11.8% respectively.
