North Pacific Surgical Association. Annual Meeting. Seattle, Washington (USA), 1996/11/08.
The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons has called upon institutions providing cancer care to compare practice patterns and outcomes with the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB).
Using data from the Virginia Mason Tumor Registry (VMTR), we sought to compare our pancreatic cancer care patterns with those reported nationally, while critically evaluating the accuracy and usefulness of our registry.
A review of the 906 computerized patient files in the VMTR from 1973 to 1995 was performed, with more detailed data on patients from the last 5 years retrieved from 224 manual abstracts.
These data were compared with the 1991 NCDB for pancreatic cancer.
The percent of cases according to AJCC stage in the NCDB (n=9,715) versus the VMTR (n=149), respectively, with cases of unknown stage excluded, were stage I 22% versus 22%, stage II 9% versus 12%, stage III 17% versus 28% (P<0.05) stage IV 52% versus 38% (P<0.05).
One-third of the cases in the VMTR 1991 to 1995 were of unknown stage ; number of cases with unknown stage for NCDB was 26.6%. The percent of surgical procedures for the NCDB (n=7,802) versus the VMTR (n=224), respectively, was pancreatectomy 14% versus 11%, local excision 1% versus 0%, no cancer-directed surgery 83% versus 89% (P<0.05), unknown 2% versus 0% (P<0.05).
The actuarial relative survival rates for the 1991 NCDB versus 1987 to 1995 VMTR was 3-year 18% versus 38%, and 5-year 14% versus 35%. (...)
