Facing the surgeon's nightmare: Incidence and management of postoperative pancreatic fistulas grade C after pancreaticoduodenectomy based on the updated definition of the International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery  (ISGPS)
AbstractBackgroundPostoperative pancreatic fistulas (POPF) grade C represent a rare but feared complication following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). They can contribute significantly to postoperative morbidity and mortality.MethodsWe performed a retrospective chart review for all patients who had undergone pancreatic head resection between 2007 and 2016 to identify those who suffered from POPF grade C according to the updated definition of the International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery (ISGPS).ResultsA total of 722 patients underwent PD. Twenty ‐three patients (3.19%) developed a POPF grade C. Cardiovascular diseases...

Standardized laparoscopic central hepatectomy based on hilar caudal view and root approach of the right hepatic vein
AbstractCentral hepatectomy is considered one of the most difficult procedures to perform laparoscopically (1). However, and thanks to the unique characteristics of the laparoscopic approach, a standardized technique can facilitate its safe performance based on three principles: no liver mobilization, initial glissonian control and root approach of the right hepatic vein. A tourniquet around the hepatic pedicle (2), is exteriorized at the level of the suprapubic incision. (Source: Journal of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery)

The primary endpoint was 5 ‐year overall survival. Clinicopathological factors that affected prognoses were identified using multivariate Cox regression analyses and were included in a predictive model.ResultsData for 205 patients were analyzed.

Prognostic value of adjacent organ resection in patients with left ‐sided pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma following distal pancreatectomy
ConclusionsDistal pancreatectomy with AOR could be an acceptable surgical treatment for left ‐sided PDAC.
