BACKGROUND The optimal management of pancreatic injuries, specifically with respect to defining ductal integrity, remains controversial. Our previous experience suggested that decisions based on probability of ductal injury might improve outcome. Consequently, a management algorithm (ALG) was developed and implemented. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of this ALG on outcomes. METHODS Consecutive patients more than 13 years with pancreatic injuries subsequent to the… CONTINUE READING
