Ampjloma early stage cancer in ampullary adenoma: Pancreatic invasion and tumor size also result as predictors of poor prognosis but they can be easily correlated to T classification and AJCC stage by definition. Gemcitabine and oxaliplatin in advanced biliary tract carcinoma: In a small series, photodynamic therapy appeared safe and useful as adjuvant treatment for biliary tract cancer including one case of ampullary carcinoma [ ], but data from larger studies are lacking.

Management of ampullary neoplasms: A tailored approach between endoscopy and surgery

All carcinomas of the Ampulla of Vater or the duodenal papilla, including poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas, are covered by this staging system.

According to some authors, ampullary tumours are considered part of periampullary tumours 4. In the a,puloma reported by Roggin et al[ ], 7 out of 8 patients treated with ampullectomy experienced recurrence of disease mostly at a loco regional level and had a substantially higher mortality compared with the PD group. Similar distribution vatdr demographic characteristics and stage between ampullary and other biliary tract cancers was observed.


To date, there are ampulomaa consistent data concerning biliary tree tumors and antiangiogenic drugs and only a few studies concerning anti-epidermal growth factor receptor EGFR drugs.

As a result, even in advanced stages, compared to pancreatic carcinoma, nodal involvement is closer to the primary tumor and generally involves a single group of lymph nodes. Epirubicin, cisplatin, and ampulima infusion of ampulma ECF in advanced intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

A gemcitabine plus capecitabine schedule was tested in 45 patients with advanced biliary cancer and no prior chemotherapy[ 67 ]. Moreover the survival of these patients was compared with that of a group of other biliary tract tumors.

Distinguishing between true ampullary cancers and periampullary tumors is critical to understanding the biology of these lesions. Contribution of endoscopy to diagnosis and treatment of tumors of the ampulla of Vater. Safety and long-term efficacy of transduodenal excision for tumors of the ampulla of Vater. In agreement with these data, adjuvant gemcitabine-based chemotherapy was found to be a significant independent predictor of a favourable prognosis in patients with hilar cholangiocarcinoma[ 51 ].

Malignant epithelial tumors of the ampulla. The disease is also more common in Caucasians than in Afro-Americans. Adjuvant photodynamic therapy for bile duct carcinoma after surgery: According to the Kimura classification[ 6 ], ampullary cancers were divided in intestinal and pancreatobiliary, depending on their histological differentiation. Pancreatobiliary versus intestinal histologic type of differentiation is an independent prognostic factor in resected periampullary adenocarcinoma.

Carcinomas of the Ampulla of Vater are rare tumors, accounting for 0. Noteably, intestinal differentiation confers a statistically significant survival advantage both in periampullary and in ampullary carcinoma, making the survival rate of ampullary cancer similar to that of duodenal cancer[ 27 ].

World J Gastrointest Endosc. The ampulla of Vater is an important landmark halfway along the second part of the duodenum that marks the anatomical transition from foregut to midgutand hence the point where the celiac trunk stops supplying the gut and the superior mesenteric artery takes over. In the same study, women were found to be less frequently affected 0. Only recent studies publication from were considered in order to avoid diagnostic, histological or surgical biases.

What did we learn from our study and what suggestions come from the literature? Most cases are associated with areas of residual adenoma, within the ampulla and in the surrounding duodenal mucosa.
