A Case-matched Comparative Study of Laparoscopic Versus Open Pancreaticoduodenectomy
Background: The laparoscopic approach to pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) is technically demanding, but may offer benefits over open surgery [open pancreaticoduodenectomy (OPD)]. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of these 2 approaches at a tertiary cancer center from the Middle East. Materials and Methods: Fifty consecutive patients who underwent LPD (n=12) and OPD (n=38) between 2015 and 2018 were considered. One surgeon performed LPD for “all comers,” while 3 other surgeons performed open surgery. Patients were randomly matched on a 1:2 basis for pathology (benign vs. malignant), malignancy ...
