Pancreatic cancer, known as “king of cancer”, is one of the high-mortality-rate cancer. Advanced stages of pancreatic cancer were very hard to be treated in clinical practice, Patients who lost chance of surgery are left no choice but to undergo palliative treatment such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Many advanced-stage pancreatic cancer patient give up on treatment. Minimally targeted invasive therapy brings new hope to advanced-stage pancreatic cancer patient.
Surgical Resection: Surgery has big trauma and high risk. But as pancreatic cancer is very hard to be diagnosed early, normally 75% of the patients are diagnosed in advanced stage. Less than 30% patients can be treated with surgery and the postoperative survival rate is only 10%.
Radiation and Chemotherapy kills: Pancreatic cancer are less sensitive to radiotherapy. Due to the deep position of the pancreas, the surrounding gastrointestinal, liver, kidney, spinal cord and the like are less tolerant to radiation, which is not conducive to radiation therapy of pancreatic cancer. Chemotherapy can damage the patient's immune system, leading to defects or decline in immune function, bone marrow suppression, digestive disorders and various inflammatory reactions.
Nanoknife: High voltage pulses released from electrode probes, resulting in multiple permanent nano-meters Irreversible Electroporation, breaking through cancer cells, accurately destroys cancer cells, protects blood vessels and nerves around the lesion, enhances the body's immune mechanism, rapidly metabolizes dead cancer cells and prevents recurrence.
Interventional Therapy: with a 1-2 millimeter incision, anti-cancer drugs are directly given to the tumor, causing fewer side effects and drug concentration is 2-8 times higher than systemic chemotherapy, killing cancer cells more accurately.
Particle Implantation: These implanted 125I seeds will keep emitting y-ray within the tumor, targeting to the cancer cells accurately; the radiation of seeds to tumor lasts for 180 days, high accuracy, millimeter minimally invasive; few toxic side effects and complications.
TCM & Western Medicine: Combination of traditional Chinese medicine and minimally invasive techniques can not only kill the cancer cells effectively, but also reduce toxic side effects, lower the rate of cancer recurrence, and greatly improve survival rate.
Treatments for pancreatic cancer are various, but only by treating it according to patient’s individualized conditions, so that pancreatic cancer can be effectively treated and controlled. Experts from Multidisiplinary Team will jointly hold a consultation and discuss appropriate treatment options for the pancreatic cancer patients.
