Hypothesis Antecolic duodenojejunostomy prevents delayed gastric emptying (DGE) after a pylorus-preserving Whipple (ppW) procedure better than retrocolic duodenojejunostomy. Design A single operation team’s experience with antecolic and retrocolic duodenojejunostomy in ppW is analyzed on a prospective database using univariate and multivariate models. Setting Tertiary referral center that focuses on pancreatic diseases. Patients and Interventions One hundred consecutive patients undergoing a ppW procedure with retrocolic reconstruction between January 1, 1996, and December 31, 2001, and 100 consecutive patients undergoing a ppW procedure with antecolic reconstruction between January 1, 2002, and December 31, 2003. Characteristics such as median age, median hospital stay, sex, diagnosis, previous operations, blood loss, surgical and medical complications, American Society of Anesthesiologists risk groups, stent implantation, and especially DGE were matched for the comparison groups. Main Outcome Measures We compared DGE, characteristics, and perioperative variables in patients with antecolic vs retrocolic reconstruction after ppW. Results The DGE occurred significantly more often in patients with retrocolic reconstruction than in those with antecolic reconstruction ( P P  = .25), sex ( P  = .48), and postoperative surgical ( P  = .19) and medical ( P  = .054) complications. The univariate analysis between patients with and without DGE did not show significant differences regarding diagnosis, previous operations, blood loss, surgical and medical complications, American Society of Anesthesiologists classification, or stent implantation. In the multivariate analysis, only the type of reconstruction ( P  = .006) and sex ( P  = .04) seemed to affect DGE. Conclusion We recommend antecolic duodenjejunostomy in patients undergoing a ppW procedure regardless of their diagnosis.

Background: Mortality rates associated with pancreatic resection for cancer have steadily decreased with time, but improvements in long-term survival are less clear. This prospective study evaluated risk factors for survival after resection for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Methods: Data from 366 consecutive patients recorded prospectively between November 1993 and September 2001 were analysed using univariate and multivariate models. Results: Fifty-eight patients (15·8 per cent) underwent surgical...

Hypothesis Advances in specialized centers for pancreatic diseases have improved surgical morbidity and outcome. In the past, postoperative local complications (pancreatic fistulae) were causing most of the mortality. Now, more patients experience postoperative complications related to their comorbidity. Design To report a prospective audit of a single center's experience with pancreatic resection during an 8-year period. Setting Tertiary referral center focused on pancreatic diseases. Patients ...

Background Pancreatic resections can be performed with great safety. However, the morbidity rate is reported to be 40–60 per cent with a high prevalence of pancreatic complications. The aim of this study was to analyse complications after pancreatic head resection, with particular attention to morbidity and pancreatic fistula. Methods From November 1993 to May 1999, perioperative and postoperative data from 331 consecutive patients undergoing pancreatic head resection were recorded prospectively...

Background: Delayed gastric emptying is one of the most frequent postoperative complications after Whipple resection. In the present study we evaluated the role of enteral nutrition in the development of delayed gastric emptying after Whipple resection. Patients and methods: Between January 1996 and June 1998, 64 patients (30 female, 34 male) underwent a classic (n = 27) or pylorus-preserving (n = 37) Whipple resection. Two patients were excluded; 30 patients received enteral and 32 patients rec...

Surgical therapy for chronic pancreatitis is reserved for patients with complications of the disease, intractable abdominal pain, or suspected underlying carcinoma. 1 The choice of operation for chronic pancreatitis is predicated on the two anatomical variants of the disease, which are distinguished by the size of the main pancreatic duct. 2 Large duct disease (>6 mm in diameter) accounts for approximately 40% of cases and is thought to develop from increased pressure in the pancreatic ductal sy...

Background: Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) is the most frequent postoperative complication after pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD). This prospective, non-randomized study was undertaken to determine whether the incidence of DGE may be reduced by modifying the original reconstructive anatomy with a retrocolic duodenojejunostomy towards an antecolic duodenojejunostomy. Patients and methods: The study was comprised of 51 patients who underwent PPPD between August 1994 and November 1...

Abstract Background We aimed to investigate the hypothesis that preoperative thickness of the abdominal cavity influenced on the gastrojejunostomy position and the incidence of delayed gastric emptying (DGE) after pancreatoduodenectomy. Methods Between January 2009 and December 2018, consecutive patients who underwent subtotal stomach-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy were retrospectively reviewed. Thickness of the abdominal cavity at the level of the celiac axis (TACC) and umbilicus (TACU) were ...
Hintergrund Die Magenentleerungsstorung (MES) ist die haufigste Komplikation nach partieller Pankreatoduodenektomie. Wahrend eine ante- oder retrokolische Lage keinen Einfluss auf die Haufigkeit einer MES hat, wurde wiederholt postuliert, dass eine infrakolische im Gegensatz zur suprakolischen Duodenoenterostomie durch die gestreckte Position des Magenausgangs vorteilhaft ist. Beide Formen der retrokolischen Rekonstruktion wurden bislang nicht miteinander verglichen. Patienten 138 Patienten wurd...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of antecolic versus retrocolic reconstruction of gastroentric anastomosis on DGE after PPPD. Methods 30 patients with diagnosis of operable periampullary malignancies who candidate for PPPD, randomized in two equal groups. Gastroentric reconstruction were done in two methods: antecolic and re...

Abstract Background The need for nutritional support following pancreaticoduodenectomy is well recognised due to the high prevalence of malnutrition, but the optimal delivery route is still debated. This meta-analysis evaluated postoperative outcomes in patients receiving enteral or parenteral nutrition. Methods EMBASE, MEDLINE and Cochrane databases were searched to identify randomised controlled trials comparing enteral and parenteral nutrition in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy. T...

Abstract Background This study investigated the impact of gastrojejunal anatomic position on the incidence of delayed gastric emptying after pancreatoduodenectomy. Methods A total of 160 patients were included in the retrospective analysis. The relative anatomic position of the gastrojejunostomy was evaluated using coronal and sagittal plane computed tomography images on postoperative day 7; the coronal cardia anastomotic angle and the sagittal fundus anastomotic angle were measured. In the vali...

Background Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) is one of the most common morbidities of pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). The aim of this study was to clarify whether the incidence of DGE can be reduced by side-to-side gastric greater curvature-to-jejunal anastomosis in subtotal stomach-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (SSPPD).

Background Delayed gastric emptying (DGE), a common postoperative complication of pancreaticoduodenectomy, is not considered a life-threatening complication. In the present study, we analyzed the risk factors for DGE and its impact on long-term prognosis. Methods We analyzed 383 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy between 2003 and 2010, dividing them into two groups according to DGE grade as defined by the International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery: 243 without DGE (non-DGE group...
