Upon examination of the patient, doctors looked for kidney stones and discovered a cancerous tumor of the pancreas.

In Lviv, surgeons performed a rare radical operation to save the life of a cancer patient. The Whipple operation, performed by specialists from St. Panteleimon Hospital, is considered one of the most complex abdominal surgery interventions, reports the First Medical Association of Lvov.

It is reported that during the examination of the patient, doctors looked for kidney stones and discovered a cancerous tumor of the pancreas.

“The patient is 60-year-old Maria from the Lviv region. The woman worked in production all her life. She always took care of her health, because her relatives died early from oncology. Therefore , she regularly undergoes examinations. This was the case this spring, when Maria went for a regular ultrasound. Doctors suspected that the woman had developed kidney stones, but they were simply stunned: diagnosed he has a tumor in the pancreas, and CT diagnostics confirmed: the patient has a tumor of the head of the pancreas with a size of 3×4 centimeters. The formation is strictly adjacent to the portal and superior mesenteric vein,” said the doctors.

When the woman arrived at the Oncology Center of St. Panteleimon Hospital, a multidisciplinary team developed a treatment strategy for him, the first stage of which was chemotherapy, and after only five courses of chemotherapy, oncologists and vascular surgeons performed a six-hour operation. .

First, the surgeons performed a pancreaticoduodenectomy – they removed part of the pancreas, part of the stomach, gallbladder and duodenum. Next, they removed the affected part of the portal and mesenteric vein, through which venous blood passes to the liver, inserting an artificial prosthesis six centimeters long, the report said.

On the sixth day after the operation, the woman was able to go home, but she still faced a course of chemotherapy and long-term rehabilitation.

Doctors remind that pancreatic cancer is one of the five most common cancers in Ukraine. It is dangerous because in 95% of patients it is completely asymptomatic, and patients turn to doctors late, when the tumor has metastasized and the operation is no longer effective. The disease can be detected if you undergo regular medical examinations in a timely manner.

It was previously reported that Lviv doctors transplanted a kidney from an infant to a five-year-old child.

We remind you that in Lviv a woman was removed with a giant tumor weighing 13 kilograms.

The doctors sewed the cancer patient’s leg back to the front, but it wasn’t a mistake
