Stented Versus Non-Stented Pancreaticogastrostomy after Pancreaticoduodenectomy

Abstract

1. Abstract
1.1. Background: After pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD), pancreatic leakage is the most frequent and serious complication. The use of pancreatic duct stenting for pancreaticogastrostomy (PG) in PD remains controversial. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of stenting when fashioning a PG to prevent pancreatic leakage after PD.
