Outcomes in patients diagnosed with periampullary tumors who underwent ampullectomy in HUM between 2013-2018

Project Details


Background Tumors arising from the ampulla of Vater are entities with a low prevalence and high mortality in cases of malignant neoplasms. Management is surgical and approaches range from open to endoscopic surgery. Historically, they have been managed with radical surgical interventions, but it has been documented that in selected cases transduodenal ampullectomy (TDA) is a safe treatment. Our aim is to present the characteristics and outcomes of a group of patients with ampullary lesions that underwent transduodenal ampullectomy focusing on indications and technical aspects.
