Among 194 patients with unresectable locally advanced pancreatic cancer who received intraoperative radiotherapy as part of their treatment, the 1-year, 2-year, 3-year, and 5-year overall survival rates were 49%, 16%, 6%, and 3%, respectively. Small tumor diameter, low Charlson age-comorbidity index, and receipt of chemotherapy were found to be independently predictive of improved survival, with a median overall survival of 21.2 months for patients with all 3 favorable prognostic factors.
