Background In 2005, the International Study Group of Pancreatic Fistula developed a definition and grading of postoperative pancreatic fistula that has been accepted universally. Eleven years later, because postoperative pancreatic fistula remains one of the most relevant and harmful complications of pancreatic operation, the International Study Group of Pancreatic Fistula classification has become the gold standard in defining postoperative pancreatic fistula in clinical practice. The aim of th...

Background Morbidity after pancreas resection is still high with postoperative pancreatic fistulas (POPF) being the most frequent complication. However, exocrine insufficiency seems to protect from POPF. In clinical practice, patients showing increased postoperative systemic amylase concentrations appear to frequently develop POPF. We therefore retrospectively examined the occurrence of systemic amylase increase after pancreas resections and its association with the clinical course.

Background Recent literature suggests that chyle leak may complicate up to 10% of pancreatic resections. Treatment depends on its severity, which may include chylous ascites. No international consensus definition or grading system of chyle leak currently is available. Methods The International Study Group on Pancreatic Surgery, an international panel of pancreatic surgeons working in well-known, high-volume centers, reviewed the literature and worked together to establish a consensus on the defi...

Introduction Post-operative pancreatic fistula has been well defined. However the underlying aetiology remains poorly understood. The aim of this review was to investigate whether the underlying aetiology for a proportion of patients suffering from post-operative pancreatic fistula was due to post-operative pancreatitis.

Aims Anastomotic leakage after colorectal surgery is a severe complication. One possible cause of anastomotic leakage is insufficient vascular supply. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and the usefulness of intraoperative assessment of vascular anastomotic perfusion in colorectal surgery using indocyanine green (ICG)-enhanced fluorescence.

Background Pancreas-specific complications (PSCs), comprising postoperative pancreatic fistula, haemorrhage and intra-abdominal collections, are drivers of morbidity and mortality after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). A serum amylase concentration of 130 units/l or more on postoperative day (POD) 0 has been shown to be an objective surrogate of pancreatic texture, a determinant of PSCs. This study evaluated serial measurements of C-reactive protein (CRP) to refine PSC risk stratification. Methods ...

RESULTS In the primary cohort, 148 907 encounters had suspected infection (n = 74 453 derivation; n = 74 454 validation), of whom 6347 (4%) died. Among ICU encounters in the validation cohort (n = 7932 with suspected infection, of whom 1289 [16%] died), the predictive validity for in-hospital mortality was lower for SIRS (AUROC = 0.64; 95% CI, 0.62-0.66) and qSOFA (AUROC = 0.66; 95% CI, 0.64-0.68) vs SOFA (AUROC = 0.74; 95% CI, 0.73-0.76; P < .001 for both) or LODS (AUROC = 0.75; 95% CI, 0.73-0....

Introduction International Study Group of Pancreatic Fistula (ISGPF) grade C postoperative pancreatic fistulas (POPF) are the greatest contributor to major morbidity and mortality following pancreatoduodenectomy (PD); however, their infrequent occurrence has hindered deeper analysis. This study sought to develop a predictive algorithm, which could facilitate effective management of this challenging complication.

Abstract Introduction Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is the most significant cause of morbidity and mortality after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). We evaluated the role of postoperative serum lipase concentration in ruling out POPF in the immediate post-operative period. Materials and methods We retrospectively analysed 98 consecutive PD performed between January 2009 and December 2014, investigating the correlation between postoperative day 1 (POD1) serum lipase concentration and POPF d...

Background null Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is one of the major complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy. There have been many studies into the risk factors determining POPF. Some studies have reported a higher peri-operative fluid balance associated with POPF, however, the pertinent findings remain controversial. The aims of this study were to determine risk factors of clinically relevant-post operative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy and an association...

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...

Abstract Postoperative (or postpancreatectomy) acute pancreatitis (PPAP) in the pancreatic remnant has recently been recognized as a distinct complication entity that may occur after both partial pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) and distal pancreatectomy (DP). However, it remains unclear what constitutes PPAP. Moreover, the pathophysiologic events leading to PPAP are not fully understood and no internationally accepted definition of PPAP exists. Recent studies mostly used an early postoperative increa...

PURPOSE Postoperative pancreatic fistulae (POPF) present a serious and life-threatening complication after pancreatic head resections (PD). Therefore, reliable risk stratification to identify those at risk is urgently needed. The aim of this study was to identify postoperative laboratory parameters for the prediction of POPF in the early postoperative period. METHODS One hundred eighty-two patients who underwent PD from 2012 until 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. Multivariate logistic regress...

Abstract Background Postoperative acute pancreatitis (POAP) emerges as a distinct pancreas-specific complication increasing both the risk and the burden of POPF after pancreatoduodenectomy. Among various risk factors, pancreas stump (PS) hypoperfusion might play a role in POAP occurrence but has never been investigated. The current study aimed at evaluating the feasibility of intraoperative fluorescence angiography (IOFA) of the PS using ICG and its association with POAP. Methods Consecutive pat...

PURPOSE Serum and drain amylase have been identified as important predictors of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) and might be useful to guide postoperative drain management after pancreatoduodenectomy. We aimed to determine and compare the value of serum amylase and drain fluid amylase to predict postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreatoduodenectomy. METHODS This retrospective cohort study included patients after pancreatoduodenectomy from 2012 to 2019. The primary endpoint of our ...

Background Many studies have explored factors relating to post-operative pancreatic fistula (POPF); however, the original definition (All-POPF) was revised to include only 'clinically relevant' (CR) POPF. This study identified variables associated with the two International Study Group on Pancreatic Surgery definitions to identify which variables are more strongly associated with CR-POPF. Methods A systematic review identified all studies reporting risk factors for POPF (using both International...

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...
