A retrospective survey of 7 European centers involving 20 surgeons who undertook 1,236 laparoscopic cholecystectomies was performed. The procedure was completed in 1,191 patients. Conversion to open cholecystectomy was necessary in 45 patients (3.6%) either because of technical difficulty (n = 33), the onset of complications (n = 11), or instrument failure(More)
Twenty-one years ago, Howard published a paper entitled "Forty-one Consecutive Whipple Resections Without an Operative Mortality." That paper stimulated the present analysis of the last 118 consecutive pancreatoduodenectomies (107 Whipple and 11 total resections) performed at the Surgical University Clinic Mannheim from November 1985 to the present day with(More)
Abstract The prognosis of patients who undergo resection for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma with curative intention is generally poor unless they have early-stage disease. Based on our 25-year experience, the results of 194 patients after a standardized Kausch-Whipple resection for adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head were analyzed and the prognostic(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors reviewed the hemorrhagic complications of patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomies between 1972 and 1996. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Although recent studies have demonstrated a reduction in the mortality of pancreatic resection, morbidity is still high. Bleeding is a close second to anastomotic dehiscence in the list of dangerous(More)
This paper analyses the early postoperative complications after 285 pancreaticoduodenectomies performed during the past 15 years in the Surgical University Clinic, Mannheim. There were 235 partial (Whipple) and 52 total pancreatectomies performed for pancreatic and periampullary tumors (181 patients) and complicated chronic pancreatitis (104 patients). A(More)
OBJECTIVE To find out whether there is any benefit from venous resection during pancreaticoduodenectomy for ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING University Hospital Mannheim/Heidelberg, Germany. INTERVENTIONS 271 patients had resections for ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head between 1980 and 2001. The outcome(More)
Despite a superior quality of life and a favorable cost effectiveness, it has not been well established thus far whether renal cadaveric transplantation contributes to superior survival probability of end-stage renal disease patients in Europe, because the mortality rate on dialysis is lower compared with the United States. This analysis was undertaken to(More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective study was undertaken to evaluate the accuracy of a noninvasive "all-in-one" staging method in predicting surgical resectability in patients with pancreatic or periampullary tumors. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Despite progress in imaging techniques, accurate staging and correct prediction of resectability remains one of the chief(More)
Adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic body and tail often presents late and is widely regarded as incurable by surgical resection; long-term survivors are rare. Thirteen patients underwent left resection (n = 7) or total pancreatectomy (n = 6) in a consecutive series of 105 patients with carcinoma of the body or tail of the pancreas. Comparison was made with 17(More)
This is a report on 501 pancreatic and periampullary cancers treated at the Mannheim Surgical Clinic during the past 11 years. Modern diagnostic measures (computerized axial tomography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and angiography), while failing to detect the early operable tumors, have contributed to a rise in the rate of resectability(More)
