  • A Study of Perioperative Intravenous Lidocaine Infusion for Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic and Open Pancreatectomies Jacksonville, FL

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate if a lidocaine infusion during surgery will provide benefit to pancreatectomy patients in regards to analgesia and return of bowel function.

  • A Randomized Study of Olaparib or Placebo in Patients With Surgically Removed Pancreatic Cancer Who Have a BRCA1, BRCA2 or PALB2 Mutation, The APOLLO Trial Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate how well the addition of olaparib following completion of surgery and chemotherapy works in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that has been surgically removed (resected) and has a pathogenic mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2, or PALB2. Olaparib is an inhibitor of PARP, an enzyme that helps repair deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) when it becomes damaged. Blocking PARP may help keep tumor cells from repairing their damaged DNA, causing them to die. PARP inhibitors are a type of targeted therapy.

  • Pancreatic Surgery Database Jacksonville, FL

    The aims of this study will be collection of standard and routinely obtained data specifically in the preoperative evaluation, operative room, postoperative/hospitalization period, and long term follow from the electronic medical record.  Data collected will then be analyzed with standard scientific methods. 

  • 68GaFAPI-46 PET/CT for Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to examine the utility of 68GaFAPI-46 PET/CT imaging in adult patients with biopsy-proven Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDA) who have no prior treatment for their PDA and who are expected to undergo surgical resection following NAT. 

  • Post-Surgical Based Efforts to Reduce Preventable Readmissions and Optimize Length of Stay Rochester, MN

    The investigators believe that the lessons learned from studies regarding 30-day and 90-day readmission are primarily due to failure of early symptom recognition, and medical error. Through the aid of remote monitoring and early symptom detection, the hypothesis for the current proposal is that interventions can be recommended in an earlier, remote fashion that may result in earlier post-surgical discharge, prevent decompensation, and prevent increased readmissions that have been associated with decreased LOS in other surgical populations.
