The method to lower postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after distal pancreatectomy (DP) involves controlling risk factors for leakage from the pancreatic stump. The aim of this study was to identify controllable risk factors for POPF. In order to promote homogeneity, we used a single surgeon case series and then calculated POPF with a public web-based tool based on the severity classification system of the International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery (ISGPS). A total of 223 consecutive… CONTINUE READING
