Experimental: Directional Brachytherapy Source Implant
Patients undergoing a pancreatic cancer resection will receive a CivaSheet LDR directional brachytherapy implant at the time of surgery. The directional nature of the FDA cleared CivaSheet is expected to allow physicians to increase the radiation dose given to the surgical margin safely, reducing risk of recurrence without increasing radiation side effects.
Device: Directional Brachytherapy Source Implant
The FDA Cleared CivaSheet Directional Pd103 Brachytherapy Source is a planar radiaiton source which utilizes gold shielding in its construction. This device is radioactive on one side only, and is capable of safely delivering high doses of radiation to target areas even when placed directly adjacent to sensitive, healthy tissue or critical structures.
