This study evaluates histopathological features and outcomes of ampullary carcinoma and to compares the survival of these tumors to that of other biliary tract tumors. May arise from villous adenoma or villoglandular polyp; usually is a coexisting adenoma Carcinomas of pancreas, gallbladder, extrahepatic bile ducts and ampulla have common embryonic cellular ancestry, differentiation pathways, mucosal histologic patterns and population related tumor development, indicating a field effect in carcinogenesis Carcinomas of pancreas are more common than at these other sites because pancreatic ductal system has a greater surface area Arch Pathol Lab Med ; Rev Col Bras Cir ; Recurrence and prognostic factors ee ampullary carcinoma after radical resection: Intestinal ampullary adenocarcinomas originate from the intestinal epithelium overlying the ampulla whereas pancreaticobiliary ampullary carcinomas originate from the epithelium of the distal common bile duct and distal pancreatic duct.
