Patients with histologically confirmed pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas, colorectal and appendiceal adenocarcinomas
For cohort 1: Resectable Pancreatic Cancer: No evidence of distant metastasis and tumor mass showing no extension to superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and hepatic artery. There must be clear fat plane between SMA and celiac axis. Patent superior mesenteric vein (SMV/portal vein (PV) with no distortion of venous architecture. Please refer to 2021 NCCN PDAC Guidelines
For cohort 1: Borderline Resectable Pancreatic Cancer: defined as localized cancer with 1 or more of the following features: "a) an interface between the primary tumor and superior mesenteric vein (SMV)-portal vein (PV) measuring 180o or greater of the circumference of the vein wall, and/or b) short-segment occlusion of the SMV-PV with normal vein above and below the level of obstruction that is amenable to resection and venous reconstruction and/or c) short segment interface of any degree between tumor and hepatic artery with normal artery proximal and distal to the interface that is amenable to resection and arterial reconstruction and/or d) an interface between the tumor and SMA or celiac trunk measuring less than 180o of the circumference of the artery wall. Please refer to 2021 National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDAC) Guidelines
For cohort 2: Peritoneal Metastases due to Colorectal Cancer or Invasive Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix
For cohort 3: Oligometastatic colorectal cancer: resectable metastases as determined by multidisciplinary evaluation. Patients with bilobar liver metastases or oligometastatic liver and lung metastases that requires resection of one or more metastases are also allowed
