Core Tip Intraoperative radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer with/without portal vein (PV) resection is reported to be associated with PV stenosis. However, there has been no report of PV stenosis after pancreatectomy following neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy (NACRT). Here we report the cases of three patients with PV stenosis after pancreatectomy and PV resection following gemcitabine-based NACRT for pancreatic cancer and their successful treatment with stent placement. We have performed pancreatectomy with PV resection following NACRT in 8 patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer since 2005. The ratio of post-operative PV stenosis is 37.5% in this series.
