Prospective validation of a preoperative risk score model based on pancreatic texture to predict postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreaticoduodenectomy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In 2015, basing on objective preoperative factors related to pancreas remnant texture (body mass index, Wirsung duct size and preoperative diagnosis), we proposed a score model to predict the risk of postoperative pancreatic fistula after partial pancreatectomies. The aim of the present study was to prospectively validate this preoperative… (More)
