Abstract Background A fatty infiltration of the pancreas has been traditionally regarded as the main histological risk factor for postoperative pancreatic fistula, whereas the role of the secreting acinar compartment has been poorly investigated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of acinar content at pancreatic resection margin in the development of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula and clinically relevant postoperative acute pancreatitis after pancreaticoduodenec...

Abstract Background In bowel surgery, adherence to enhanced recovery program (ERP) has been associated with improved recovery. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of adherence to ERP elements on outcomes, and identify factors associated with successful recovery following distal pancreatectomy (DP). Methods Data for 376 patients who underwent DP managed within an ERP including 16 perioperative elements were reviewed. Primary endpoint was successful recovery, a composite outcome...

A recent RCT showed similar postoperative outcomes and a reduced time to functional recovery in patients undergoing minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (DP) compared to open approach. However, it reported very-high post-discharge readmission rates, calling for further investigation. The aim of our study was to evaluate the extent to which minimally invasive surgery impacts on postoperative readmissions following DP. Clinical data for patients undergoing DP between 2011 and 2018 were reviewe...

Abstract Background Transplantation of kidneys from donation after cardiocirculatory death (DCD) donors is becoming an ever-increasing reality. So far, biopsy histologic assessment is the main parameter for evaluation of graft suitability, but it has several drawbacks and has poor reliability. The aim of this study is to verify if real-time renal resistance (RR) measurement during hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) can be used as a reliable parameter to evaluate the quality of grafts from DCD a...

Abstract Background International guidelines suggest a watchful strategy for small nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the management and indications for surgery in patients with asymptomatic nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors ≤2 cm. Methods Patients with asymptomatic, incidental, sporadic nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors ≤2 cm without nodal or distant metastases were included (2012–2016). A comparison between active ...

Duodeno-jejunal (DJ) and gastro-jejunal (GJ) anastomosis leakage represents a rare but life-threatening complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy or total pancreatectomy. The aim of this study was to assess its incidence, clinical presentation, and outcomes, and to identify perioperative risk factors for DJ/GJ leak. Prospectively collected perioperative data were reviewed, and a case–control study was performed. Patients who presented with a DJ/GJ leak (cases) were matched in a 1:5 ratio with p...

: Hypothermic machine perfusion (HPM) grants a better postoperative outcome in transplantation of organs procured from extended criteria donors (ECDs) and donors after cardiac death (DCD). So far, the only available parameter for outcome prediction concerning those organs is pretransplant biopsy score. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether renal resistance (RR) trend during HPM may be used as a predictive marker for post-transplantation outcome. From December 2015 to present, HMP has been...
