Abstract: In this report, we did a retrospective study of 125 patients with cancer of the pancreas. Seventeen (36.2%) of the 47 patients with cancer of the pancreatic head underwent resection; 11.2% died within 30 days of surgery, 33.3 survived the first year, and 13.3 survived the first three years. The longest survival was for five years. Nine (23%) of the 39 patients with cancer of the pancreatic body and tail underwent resection; 11.1% died within 30 days, 37.5% survived the first year, and none survived more than three years. The longest survival was for 35 months. Important factors affecting the prognosis were invasion by the cancer of veins or lymph vessels in the surrounding tissues, and metastasis to regional lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage of small cancers of the pancreatic head were established early. Invasion to the retroperitoneal tissue in cancer of the pancreatic body and tail was more common than in cancer of the pancreatic head. For the patient of early cancer of the pancreas, we strongly recommend total pancreatectomy over WHIPPLE's pancreatoduodenectomy, based on results of our analysis of the outcome in our patients following these two operations. Key words: Cancer of the pancreas, Total pancreatectomy, WHIPPLE's pancreatoduodenectomy
