Abstract

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma recurrence after surgery (PARaS) is associated with poor outcomes. PARaS is locoregional in 50%–80%, effecting the resection bed and adjacent lymphatics.1–3 Detection of PARaS via endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is challenging because recurrent malignancy is difficult to distinguish from normal postoperative changes. Diagnosing PARaS is important, because salvage chemotherapy/radiation improves survival.4,5 The purpose of this investigation is to determine the clinical utility of EUS fine-needle aspiration (FNA) in patients with suspected PARaS.
