Pancreatic resection (pancreas surgery) volume
Pancreatic resection is the surgical removal of tissue from the pancreas. This is often done to remove cancerous tumors. The volume measures the number of procedures done at the hospital.
A pancreatic resection requires technical skill. Complications of pancreatic resection can lead to a relatively high death rate, and some of these complications may be preventable.
