Answer

Guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommend that decisions about resectability involve input from a multidisciplinary group of specialists at a high-volume center. The NCCN panel also agreed that selecting patients for surgery should be based on the probability of cure as determined by resection margins. Other factors include comorbidities, overall performance, and age. [2]
