Abstract null null Background null Intraperitoneal drain placement decreases morbidity and mortality in patients who develop a clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF) following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). It is unknown whether multiple drains mitigate CR-POPF better than a single drain. We hypothesize that multiple drains decrease the complication burden more than a single drain in cases at greater risk for CR-POPF. null null null Methods null The Fistula Risk Score (FRS...

BACKGROUND Pancreatic surgery is associated with considerable morbidity and, consequently, offers a large and complex field for research. To prioritize relevant future scientific projects, it is of utmost importance to identify existing evidence and uncover research gaps. Thus, the aim of this project was to create a systematic and living Evidence Map of Pancreatic Surgery. METHODS PubMed, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and Web of Science were systematically searched for all...

The reported conversion rates for minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (MIDP) range widely from 2 to 38%. The identification of risk factors for conversion may help surgeons during preoperative planning and patient counseling. Moreover, the impact of conversion on outcomes of MIDP is unknown. A systematic review was conducted as part of the 2019 Miami International Evidence-Based Guidelines on Minimally Invasive Pancreas Resection (IG-MIPR). The PubMed, Cochrane, and Embase databases were se...

: MINI: The characteristics of cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (cPanNENs) are largely unknown, and their clinical management remains unclear; specifically, an observational strategy for asymptomatic cPanNENs ≤2 cm has been proposed by recent guidelines, but evidence is scarce and limited to single institutional series. In this international cohort study of 263 resected cPanNENs from 16 institutions worldwide, a preoperative size >2 cm was independently associated with aggressive behav...

Abstract Background The association between intraoperative estimated blood loss and outcomes after pancreatoduodenectomy has, thus far, been rarely explored. Methods In total, 7,706 pancreatoduodenectomies performed at 18 international institutions composing the Pancreas Fistula Study Group were examined (2003–2020). High estimated blood loss (>700 mL) was defined as twice the median. Propensity score matching (1:1 exact-match) was employed to adjust for variables associated with high estimated ...

Abstract Background Despite abundant, high-level scientific evidence, there is no consensus regarding the prevention, mitigation, and management of clinically relevant pancreatic fistula after pancreatoduodenectomy. The aim of the present investigation is three-fold: (1) to analyze the multiple decision-making points for pancreatico-enteric anastomotic creation and fistula mitigation and management after pancreatoduodenectomy, (2) to reveal the practice of contemporary experts, and (3) to indica...
