Locally advanced and metastatic disease Surgery represents the main therapeutic approach for ampullary cancer, whilst unresectable tumors can be treated with cander radiotherapy or chemotherapy. In clinical trials concerning chemotherapy treatments, tumors of the ampulla of Vater are usually included in the group of pancreato-biliary tumors, although some data recognize their histological and clinical peculiarities.

Transpapillary IDUS demonstrats good accuracy in the detection of tumor infiltration of ampullary cancer[ 30 ], whereas CT and MRI are recommended for the detection of distant metastases. Utility of immunohistochemistry in distinguishing primary adenocarcinomas from metastatic breast carcinomas in the gastrointestinal tract. Diagnostic staging laparoscopy may be indicated to avoid laparotomy in the setting of advanced disease with distant occult metastasis.

Gemcitabine-based adjuvant chemotherapy improves survival after aggressive surgery for hilar cholangiocarcinoma. Local resection ampullectomy may be considered for patients with an ampullary adenoma with absence of dysplasia on preoperative biopsies who are inappropriate candidates for pancreaticoduodenectomy.

Long-term survival and metastatic pattern of pancreatic and periampullary cancer after adjuvant chemoradiation or observation: Conversely, the survival rate of ampullary cancer with pancreatobiliary differentiation appears to be comparable to that of pancreatic cancer[ 2627 ]. However, the small sample size of patients with ampullary carcinoma recruited in the ABC 02 study, and lack of other randomized trials, make the optimal treatment for these patients still debatable.
