Background The association between postoperative inflammatory markers and risk of complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is controversial. We sought to assess the diagnostic value of perioperative C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin (PCT) levels in the early identification of patients at risk for complications after PD.

Abstract Intra-abdominal infections are frequent and life-threatening complications after colorectal surgery. An early detection could diminish their clinical impact and permit safe early discharge. This study aimed to find the most accurate marker for the detection of postoperative intra-abdominal infection and the appropriate moment to measure it. A prospective, observational study was conducted in 3 centers. Consecutive patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery with anastomosis were inc...

Pancreatic surgery remains associated with important morbidity. Efforts are most commonly concentrated on decreasing postoperative morbidity, but early detection of patients at risk could be another valuable strategy. A simple prognostic score has recently been published. This study aimed to validate this score and discuss possible clinical implications.From 2000 to 2012, 245 patients underwent a pancreaticoduodenectomy. Complications were graded according to the Dindo-Clavien Classification. Th...

Abstract Background A post‐operative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after a pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). This systematic review aimed to identify all scoring systems to predict POPF after a PD, consider their clinical applicability and assess the study quality. Method An electronic search was performed of Medline (1946–2014) and EMBASE (1996–2014) databases. Results were screened according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta‐Analys...

AIM: To establish a scoring system to predict clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). METHODS: The clinical records of 921 consecutive patients who underwent PD between 2008 and 2013 were reviewed retrospectively. Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) was defined and classified by the international study group of pancreatic fistula (ISGPF). We used a logistic regression model to determine the independent risk factors of CR-POPF and dev...

We reviewed the use of the levels of C-reactive protein, lactate and procalcitonin and/or the Sequential Organ Failure Assessment score to determine their diagnostic accuracy for predicting surgical complications in critically ill general post-surgery patients. Included were all studies published in PubMed from inception to July 2013 that met the following inclusion criteria: evaluation of the above parameters, describing their diagnostic accuracy and the risk stratification for surgical complic...

Background Elective esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction carries a high risk for complications. Early and accurate diagnosis could improve patient management. Increased C-reactive protein (CRP) levels may be associated with any, surgical or infectious, complication and procalcitonin (PCT) specifically with infectious complications.

BACKGROUND: To investigate the early prediction value of procalcitonin (PCT) in pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). METHOD: Retrospective analysis of clinical data of 67 patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and 19 patients undergoing distalpancreatectomy (DP) were performed in the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, Leshan People's Hospital from January 2017 to December 2018. All patients were divided into POPF group and non-POPF group depending on the presen...
Abstract Backround C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin (PCT) have shown to be reliable predictors of inflammatory complications and anastomotic leak after colorectal surgery. Their predictive value after partial pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) remains unclear. Materials and methods All consecutive pancreaticoduodenectomies (2009–2018) at our hospital were included. Drain amylase was evaluated on postoperative day (POD) 1, serum CRP and PCT were evaluated on POD 1–3. Receiver-operating charac...

Procalcitonin (PCT) is an early predictor of bacterial infection. We reviewed the literature and analyzed data on our own patients to assess the value of PCT as a predictor of infectious complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). The relevant literature published up until November 30, 2018, was reviewed, with no publication date restrictions. Letters to the editor and studies lacking necessary data were excluded. We also reviewed, retrospectively, the medical records of 77 patients who un...

Abstract Background Recent management after pancreatoduodenectomy recommends either omission of prophylactic drainage or early removal. This potentially makes the diagnosis of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) difficult because the diagnosis is based on the amylase value of drain effluent. The aim of this study was to determine if severe POPF could be predicted independent of drainage information. Methods Records of consecutive patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy between 2012 and ...

Abstract Background Prediction of complications after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) remains of interest. Blood parameters and biomarkers during first and second postoperative days (POD1, POD2) may be early indicators of complications. Methods This case-control study included 50 patients. Baseline, POD1 and POD2 values of leukocytes, neutrophils, lymphocytes, platelets, hemoglobin, C-reactive protein (CRP), procalcitonin and arterial lactate were compared between individuals presenting Clavien ≥ III...

Abstract Background Early recognition of postoperative pancreatic fistula might decrease the risk of subsequent life threatening complications. The aim of this review was to systematically evaluate the accuracy of postoperative clinical, biochemical and radiologic variables for early recognition of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula.

BACKGROUND: This study was undertaken to assess the value of C-reactive protein (CRP) in predicting infective complications after elective upper gastrointestinal surgery. METHODS: Demographic data, clinical outcomes and serial CRPs preoperatively to post-operative day (POD) 7 were collected for patients undergoing pancreatectomy, hepatectomy and oesophago-gastrectomy between 2005 and 2016. Areas under the curve (AUC) were used to evaluate diagnostic accuracy per day of measurement. RESULTS: Of t...

BACKGROUND: Relatively high mortality and morbidity rates are reported after liver resection (LR). However, the early predictors of complications after LR are not clear. This study was performed to clarify the usefulness of procalcitonin (PCT) for the early prediction of complications after elective LR. METHODS: This observational study included 72 consecutive patients who underwent elective LR from December 2015 to March 2017. Patients were categorized into two groups: those with and without po...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Approximately 30-50% of patients with colorectal cancer develop liver metastasis for which liver resection is the only hope for potential cure. However, hepatic resection is associated with considerable morbidity. The aim was to detect early complications by utilising the neutrophil: lymphocyte ratio (NLR). METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing hepatic resection at a single institution between 2008 and 2016. Baseline demographics and...

Background Postoperative pancreatic fistula and pancreas-specific complications have a significant influence on patient management and outcomes after pancreatoduodenectomy. The aim of the study was to assess the value of serum C-reactive protein on the postoperative day 1 as early predictor of pancreatic fistula and pancreas-specific complications.
