Review of the treatment of pancreatic cancer in Israel

“The doctors in Russia have detected the pancreatic cancer. Nevertheless, the local surgeons refused to provide the surgery as the tumor location was not convenient for the procedure. The family insisted on my treatment in Israel. I have had the full diagnostics and the successful surgery there. I am home right now, feeling great. My doctor considers I have fully recovered from the disease!”

Treatment of pancreatic cancer in Israel

Pancreatic cancer takes 3rd place among most frequent digestive system oncologic diseases and 5th place among the reasons of death by tumors. The cancer affects the pancreas, i.e. the organ producing digestive enzymes and hormones. There may be affected the head of the gland (50-60%), its body (10%) or the tail (5-8%). The entire organ affection happens in 20-35% of the cases. About 10 persons per 100,000 people get the pancreatic cancer annually. There has been a steady tendency to an increase in the incidence of this type of cancer.

Diagnostics of the pancreatic cancer in Israel

The range of diagnostic procedures is applied for pancreatic cancer diagnostics in Israel, both by minimal invasive and invasive methods. This is connected to the complications of the diagnostics of such an oncologic disease. The following studies are held under the pancreatic cancer suspect:

  • Abdominal ultrasound with Doppler scan of abdominal blood vessels, i.e. detection of tumor by ultrasound
  • Multi-slice CT by pancreas imaging, i.e. study of affected organ by X-ray
  • MRI, i.e. pancreas imaging by magnetic field
  • Blood testing. Peculiar attention is paid to tumor markers testing, i.e. antigen CA19-9, which contents in the blood is modified by the tumor development.
  • Gastroscopy, i.e. study of digestive system organs by a gastroscope.

Such studies in Israel take four days as a rule. If the suspicions are confirmed, Israeli doctors appoint the additional testing:

  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, i.e. study of pancreas and bile ducts images, received by the endoscope.
  • Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, i.e. kind of X-ray testing of blockages in the bile ducts.
  • Laparoscopy, i.e. examination of the affected organ by a laparoscope through a little incision in the abdominal wall. This method may be applied for collection of material for biopsy.
  • Biopsy, i.e. examination of the pancreatic tissues for cancer cells detection. Part of the affected organ is withdrawn for the biopsy by laparoscopic method or by the fine needle under the local anesthesia.

The final diagnosis is put after the analysis of these examinations. If the cancer is detected, then the chest X-ray, liver ultrasound and other testing are made to detect the stage of disease. Israeli doctors carry out the diagnostic studies rapidly and by high precision.

Methods of pancreatic cancer treatment in Israel

Pancreatic cancer treatment is a complicated long-term process. The tumor is peculiar by its aggressiveness, spreads rapidly and affects the vital organs of digestive system.

The most efficient treatment method at the early stages is the surgery. Unfortunately, only 25% of all patients may have the surgery. The type of surgery depends on the hearth of affection in the pancreas:

  • Pancreatectomy is held when the body or the tail of the gland are affected and means the resection of the entire pancreas as well as the spleen.
  • Whipple surgery is applied when the head of the gland is affected, including its removal alongside with the gallbladder, duodenum, sites of the bile ducts and the stomach.

The new method of Nano-knife is widely used while the surgeries held in Israeli medical centers. This tool destroys the cancer cells by current with no risk for organs and blood vessels damage.

Almost 20% of the patients require the second surgery to restore the patency between the stomach and the duodenum.

Chemotherapy is widely applied at the latter stages of pancreatic cancer and in case of danger of the surgery, i.e. administration of the high-toxic agents to destroy the cancer cells, such as fluorouracil. The methods of radiotherapy are also applied, including the implantation of radioactive substances into the intestine for local tumor irradiation.

When the cases are hopeful, meaning the cancer was detected at the latest stages, Israeli doctors apply the palliative methods, i.e. surgeries and irradiations allowing the significant prolongation of the patient’s life.
