abstract

  • In PDAC, VsT can frequently present as an incidental finding on routine abdominal imaging. The most common location is PV, followed by MV and SV. We observed that AC is underutilized in this setting despite a low bleeding complication rate. PV was associated with the least overall survival of the VsT. Future large prospective studies should explore the role of AC and value in this setting.
