The Whipple Procedure for Ampullary and Pancreatic Cancer

Ampullary

Ampullary cancer or ampullary carcinoma refers to cancer that occurs in the Ampulla of Vater or hepatopancreatic duct. Basically, this is where the pancreatic and bile ducts connect near the small intestine. “It’s a part of the body that most people don’t know exists until there’s a problem,” says Dr. Tom Incledon, Founder and CEO of Causenta. “The Ampulla of Vater’s job is to push secretions into the small intestine to assist in the digestive process.”
