FIG. 1. From: Standardization of Surgical and Pathologic Variables is Needed in Multicenter Trials of Adjuvant Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer: Results from the ACOSOG Z5031 Trial.

a Lateral retraction of the SMV and dissection along the adventitia of the SMA may enhance the potential for margin-negative resection; this technique is considered optimal. b Stapler dissection of the SMA margin and/or failure to retract the SMV laterally prior to skeletonization of the SMA may increase the potential for microscopically incomplete resection and subsequent local recurrence
