BACKGROUND: Robotic surgery is gaining acceptance for distal pancreatectomy (DP). Nevertheless, no multi-institutional data exist to demonstrate the ideal clinical circumstances for use and the efficacy of the robot compared to the open or laparoscopic techniques, in terms of perioperative outcomes. METHODS: The 2014 ACS-NSQIP procedure-targeted pancreatectomy data for patients undergoing DP were analyzed. Demographics and clinicopathological and perioperative variables were compared between the three approaches...

BACKGROUND: Political and public interest in quality management in surgery is increasing. The German Society for General and Visceral Surgery (DGAV) established the DGAV StuDoQ, a nationwide registry for quality assessment in visceral surgery, with the organ-specific module DGAV StuDoQ|Pancreas. The first prerequisite for the measurement of quality is the definition of quality indicators. These can be related to risk factors which are also documented in the registry. METHODS: Quality indicators for pancreatic surgery were developed by review of the current literature and expert consensus...

Finland ranks sixth among the countries having highest incidence rate of pancreatic cancer with mortality roughly equaling incidence. The average age of diagnosis for pancreatic cancer is 69 years in Nordic males, whereas the average age of diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis is 40-50 years, however, many cases overlap in age. By radiology, the evaluation of a pancreatic mass, that is, the differential diagnosis between chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer is often difficult. Preoperative needle biopsies are difficult to obtain and are demanding to interpret...

PURPOSE: Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is a frequent and clinically relevant problem after distal pancreatectomy. A variety of methods have been tested in the attempt to prevent POPF, most of them without convincing results. METHODS: A systematic literature search was conducted in PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane Library to identify clinical studies comparing pancreatic stump closure with the addition of Tachosil(®) to conventional stump closure. The identified studies were critically appraised, and meta-analyses were performed using a random-effects model...

BACKGROUND: It is considered natural that glucose tolerance worsens after pancreatectomy. However, diabetes mellitus (DM) resolves after metabolic bypass surgery and anatomic changes after PD resemble those after metabolic surgery. This study assessed the incidence of DM resolution after pancreatectomy and differences in metabolic parameters following pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) and distal pancreatectomy (DP). METHODS: Between 2007 and 2013, 218 consecutive patients with pancreatic diseases underwent PD (n = 112) or DP (n = 106) at Seoul National University Hospital...

BACKGROUND: The increasing elderly population is an inevitable trend worldwide in developed countries. Therefore, we aimed to assess the experience of a tertiary pancreatic center with a very homogenous population comprising only patients diagnosed with PDAC of the pancreatic head in patients older than 75 years of age compared to their younger counterparts regarding the benefit in life expectancy and tumor biological aggressiveness. METHODS: 300 patients underwent partial pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) or pylorus preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD) for PDAC of the pancreatic head between 2002 and 2012 and were evaluated with regard to their co-morbidities, clinicopathological and perioperative variables, postoperative morbidity, mortality and long term survival...

BACKGROUND: In the phase III MPACT trial, nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine (nab-P + Gem) demonstrated superior efficacy versus Gem alone for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer. We sought to examine the feasibility of positron emission tomography (PET) and to compare metabolic response rates and associated correlations with efficacy in the MPACT trial. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with previously untreated metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas were randomized 1:1 to receive nab-P + Gem or Gem alone...

INTRODUCTION: The prognostic relevance of preoperative diabetes mellitus (DM) on the outcomes of resected pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is controversial. Most previous studies evaluated the prognostic role of DM based on a single blood test. METHODS: The participants included 147 patients with PDAC who underwent pancreatectomy between September 2003 and June 2012. They were divided into following groups according to the preoperative DM and degree of hyperglycemia defined by glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c): non-DM (n = 70), DM with HbA1c < 9...

Chronic renal impairment causes profound physiologic and metabolic changes. Its impact on surgical outcome after pancreatectomy is not well established. We sought to quantify complication rates of pancreatectomy in patients with chronic renal impairment. Database from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (2005-2011) was queried to identify patients with chronic renal impairment who underwent pancreatectomy. The study population consisted of 16,708 patients of whom 16,649 patients were not on dialysis and 59 patients were on dialysis...

OBJECTIVE: We assessed circulating tumor cells (CTCs) with epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes as a potential prognostic biomarker for patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC). BACKGROUND: PDAC is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. There is an urgent need to develop biomarkers that predict patient prognosis and allow for better treatment stratification. METHODS: Peripheral and portal blood samples were obtained from 50 patients with PDAC before surgical resection and filtered using the Isolation by Size of Epithelial Tumor cells method...

BACKGROUND: Analytical morphometric assessment has recently been proposed to improve preoperative risk stratification. However, the relationship between body composition and outcomes following pancreaticoduodenectomy is still unclear. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of body composition on outcomes in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy for cancer. METHODS: Body composition parameters including total abdominal muscle area (TAMA) and visceral fat area (VFA) were assessed by preoperative staging CT in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy for cancer...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (QoL) is of major importance in pancreatic cancer, owing to the limited life expectation. The aim of this prospective longitudinal study was to describe QoL in patients undergoing resection for pancreatic or periampullary malignancy. METHODS: QoL was measured on a scale of 0-100 in patients who underwent pancreatic resection for malignancy or premalignancy at the University Medical Centre Utrecht before resection, and 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery...

BACKGROUND: In distal pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), distal pancreatectomy with en bloc splenectomy and celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) can allow curative resection in case of tumor extension to celiac axis. METHODS: From 2008 to 2013, of 102 patients with localized distal PDAC, 7 patients with celiac axis involvement were planned to undergo DP-CAR with curative intent. All patients received neoadjuvant treatment followed by preoperative coil embolization to enlarge collateral arterial pathways, except if a replaced right hepatic artery arising from superior mesenteric artery was present and sufficient for the blood supply...

BACKGROUND: Total pancreatectomy is infrequently performed for pancreatic cancer. Perceived operative mortality and questionable survival benefit deter many surgeons. Clinical outcomes, described in single-center series, remain largely unknown. METHODS: The National Cancer Database was queried for cases of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma undergoing total pancreatectomy (1998-2011). Univariate survival analyses were performed for 21 variables: demographic (8), tumor characteristics (5), surgery outcomes (6), and adjuvant therapy (2)...

BACKGROUND: Fluid collections (FC) at the resection margin of the pancreatic stump after distal pancreatectomy (DP) are common radiological findings in follow-up scans. No recommendations exist regarding the management of such findings. The aim was to characterise incidence, risk factors, clinical impact and therapy of FC. METHOD: Data of 209 patients who underwent DP between 07/2009 and 06/2011 were prospectively collected and analysed, regarding follow-up CT or MRI scan findings of FC at the resection margin...

INTRODUCTION: Several studies have confirmed the safety of pancreatoduodenectomy with portal/mesenteric vein resection and reconstruction in select patients. The effect of vein invasion and extent of invasion on survival is less clear. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between tumor invasion of the portal/mesenteric vein and long-term survival. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database of patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma at a single academic medical center (2000-2014) was performed...

BACKGROUND: In pancreatoduodenectomy (PD), mesopancreas excision with division of the inferior pancreatoduodenal artery (IPDA) is technically difficult because of the complex anatomy resulting from intestinal rotation occurring during embryological development. We have developed an intestinal derotation procedure for facilitating mesopancreas excision. The perioperative factors of PD were retrospectively compared between our derotation and the conventional procedure. METHODS: The entire small intestine and right colon are mobilized from the retroperitoneum, and intestinal rotation is reduced...
