Background & Aims null Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is associated with osteopathy (osteoporosis or osteopenia). However, existing literature is mostly limited to retrospective or administrative studies that have not clearly defined the prevalence and risk factors. Our aim was to identify patient- and disease-related associations with osteopathy in a prospective cohort study of CP. null null null Methods null We studied 282 subjects with definitive CP enrolled in the PROCEED study who had a baseline...

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...

Diffuse echogenicity of the pancreas, a commonly discovered finding on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), is often of undetermined significance. The goal of this study was to characterize the clinical picture and pancreatic function in patients who incidentally present with this endosonographic finding. This was a case–control study comparing consecutive adult patients with diffuse echogenicity of the pancreas found on EUS to those who did not have known pancreas disease. Demographic and clinical data...

Intraoperative delineation of tumor margins is critical for effective pancreatic cancer surgery. Yet, intraoperative frozen section analysis of tumor margins is a time-consuming and often challenging procedure that can yield confounding results due to histologic heterogeneity and tissue-processing artifacts. We have previously described the development of the MasSpec Pen technology as a handheld mass spectrometry–based device for nondestructive tissue analysis. Here, we evaluated the usefulness ...

BACKGROUND Pancreatic diseases have long been associated with impaired glucose control. This study sought to identify the incidence of new insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) after pancreatectomy and the predictive accuracy of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) or blood glucose. METHODS Patients who underwent partial pancreatectomy and had preoperative HbA1c available at two academic institutions were assessed for new IDDM on discharge in relation to complication rates and survival. RESULTS Of the 26...

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 Pancreatoduodenectomies at high risk for clinically relevant pancreatic fistula are uncommon, yet intimidating, situations. In such scenarios, the impact of individual surgeon experience on outcomes is poorly understood. Methods The fistula risk score was applied to identify high-risk patients (fistula risk score 7–10) from 7,706 pancreatoduodenectomies performed at 18 international institutions (2003–2020). For each case, surgeon pancreatoduodenectomy career volume and years...
