Abstract

Background: While pancreatectomy with portomesenteric venous resection and reconstruction is commonly performed for locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma, little is known regarding outcomes for pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (panNENs). Methods: Patients who underwent non-parenchyma-sparing pancreatectomy for panNENs at Mayo Clinic from 2000 to 2020 were retrospectively reviewed. Propensity score matching was performed and patient characteristics and outcomes compared. Results: Of 867 eligible patients, 41 (4.7%) required vascular resection, including 38 patients who underwent portomesenteric venous resection only. Of these, 23 underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy or total pancreatectomy and 15 distal pancreatectomy. Patients who required portomesenteric venous resection had larger tumors, higher tumor grade, and higher disease stage. After propensity score matching to patients undergoing standard resection, the portomesenteric venous resection group had longer operative times, greater blood loss, and higher transfusion rates. While portomesenteric venous thrombosis was more common after venous resection, major complication rates and perioperative mortality were similar between the two groups, as were 5-year overall and progression-free survival. Conclusion: For patients with locally advanced panNENs, pancreatectomy with portomesenteric venous resection and reconstruction can be performed in selected patients at high-volume centers with acceptable perioperative morbidity and short- and long-term survival.
