Wide excision of periampullary carcinoma is associated with low operative morbidity and mortality, but its effect on long‐term survival, compared with that of pancreaticoduodenal resection, is controversial. Five patients with periampullary carcinoma were treated with wide local excision as a definitive procedure. There was no operative death, and four patients survived for two or more years following the operation. These patients are presented and the literature is reviewed.
