BACKGROUND The study aims to assess the safety and feasibility of the robotic dual-console during a robotic distal pancreatectomy METHODS: The data of the consecutive patients submitted to RDP from 2012 to 2019 at the Verona University were retrieved from a prospectively maintained database. The patients submitted to RDP were divided into the dual-console platform group (DG) and compared to the standard robotic procedure group (SG). RESULTS In the study period, 102 robotic distal pancreatectomie...

Abstract Background Several advantages and pitfalls have been related to externalized trans-anastomotic stents (ETS) after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of an ETS effect in a risk-stratified setting. Methods Data from patients at either intermediate- or high-risk for postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) following pancreaticoduodenectomy were prospectively analyzed from January 2016 to December 2019. Outcomes included POPF rate, mean complicat...

BACKGROUND The Japanese difficulty scoring system (DSS) was developed to assess the difficulty of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP). The study aimed to validate a modified DSS (mDSS) in a European high-volume center. METHODS Patients' clinical data underwent LDP for benign and malignant pancreatic lesion between September 2013 and February 2020 were reviewed. Expert laparoscopic surgeons performed the procedures. The mDSS consisted of seven variables, such as type of operation, malignancy...

BACKGROUND The application of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) risk stratification and mitigation strategies requires an update of the protocol for an early drain removal after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). The aim of the study is to highlight the unreliability of a single drain fluid amylase (DFA) cutoff-based protocol in the setting of a risk-based drain management. METHODS The role of postoperative day one (POD1) DFA in predicting POPF was explored in the setting of both selective drai...

We tested the added value of 3D-vision on procedure time and surgical performance during robotic pancreatoduodenectomy anastomoses in biotissue. Robotic surgery has the advantage of articulating instruments and 3D-vision. Consensus is lacking on the added value of 3D-vision during laparoscopic surgery. Given the improved dexterity with robotic surgery, the added value of 3D-vision may be even less with robotic surgery. In this experimental randomized controlled cross-over trial, 20 surgeons and ...

Abstract Background The vast majority of presumed branch-duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs) of the pancreas are referred to a surveillance program due to the relatively low risk of malignancy. We aim to evaluate all available data from observational studies focused on the risks of BD-IPMN progression and malignancy to provide vital insights into its management in clinical practice. Methods A comprehensive search was conducted at PubMed, Cochrane, Web of Science and Embase f...

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...

OBJECTIVE To characterize early postoperative serum pancreatic amylase (spAMY) trends after pancreatic resections. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA A postoperative spAMY elevation is a common finding but uncertainties remain about its meaning and prognostic implications. METHODS Analysis of patients who consecutively underwent pancreatectomy from 2016 to 2019. spAMY activity was assessed from postoperative day (POD) 0 to 3. Different patterns of spAMY have been identified based on the spAMY standard rang...

Background A radical left pancreatectomy in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) may require extended, multivisceral resections. The role of a laparoscopic approach in extended radical left pancreatectomy (ERLP) is unclear since comparative studies are lacking. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes after laparoscopic vs open ERLP in patients with PDAC. Methods An international multicenter propensity-score matched study including patients who underwent either laparoscopic...
