Neoplasms of the Pancreatic Body and Tail, Incidence in University Clinical Centre of Kosova
Aim of the paper: The object of this paper is the incidence of the pancreatic body and tail cancers among the total cases of the pancreatic cancers diagnosed in the University Clinical Center of Kosova, with the aim to compare these research findings to similar studies made in the developed countries. This is a retrospective research study done during the period of 2012-2014. Materials and Methodology: This retrospective research study includes 72 patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, examined in the period of 2012-2014 in the University Clinical Center of Kosova. The imaging diagnostics are performed with MSCT Sensation 64 Siemens, MSCT Emotion 6 Siemens, and 1.5T MRI Symphony Siemens, in the Radiologic Clinic of UCCK; while the histopathologic diagnostics has been performed in the Pathologic Clinic of UCCK. Results: Out of a total of the 72 patients diagnosed with pancreas cancer, 9 cases resulted in body and tail cancers (12.5%). Discussion and Conclusions: Compared to studies made in the developed countries (approximately 25% of cases), the percentage found in this study is significantly smaller (12.5%). From an imaging point of view, these cancers were presented in an advanced stage, mainly due to their late clinical symptomatology, compared to pancreatic head and neck cancers.
