Table 1 Judgement of resectability by 5 independent surgeons

From: Consensus in determining the resectability of locally progressed pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma – results of the Conko-007 multicenter trial

  Surgeon A Surgeon B Surgeon C Surgeon D Surgeon E
[n] [%] [n] [%] [n] [%] [n] [%] [n] [%]
R0 Resection Possible 6 3.1 16 8.1 12 7.5 3 1.6 3* 1.5
R0 Resection Questionable 43 22.2 35 17.7 32 20.1 19 9.9 14 7.1

  1. Surgeons evaluated the local resectability of progressed pancreatic cancer. They classified the case (n) into R0 resection possible for resectable cases, R0 resection impossible for locally advanced cases and R0 resection questionable for borderline resectable cases. Significant deviations in judgement were observed with surgeon E matching significantly less cases as resectable (χ2 frequency distribution with post hoc analysis by cellwise adjusted residuals * P < 0.05)
