Core Tip Unfortunately, at the time of diagnosis most patients with pancreatic cancer are not candidates for curative resection. Surgical palliation, a procedure performed with the intention of relieving symptoms or improving quality of life, comes to the forefront of management. The majority of palliative care focuses on three high burden symptoms: obstructive jaundice, duodenal obstruction and tumor-related pain. There exists a wide range of interventions including both operative and non-operative techniques. Regardless of the palliative procedure, all physicians involved must be adequately trained in end of life management to ensure the best possible care for patients.
