abstract

  • The NCDB provides a powerful tool for examining practice patterns and outcome of cancer care in the U.S. The present report, covering one-third of all patients treated in the U.S. in 1991, confirms the advanced disease status of patients with pancreatic cancer. Minority groups present with more advanced disease and are less likely to undergo resection, currently the only potentially curative therapy. Resectability rates appear to be higher in large caseload hospitals.
