Preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) is associated with bacterial contamination of bile, but the effects of PBD on morbidity after pancreatoduodenectomy remain controversial. The aim of this study was to characterize bile contamination to develop successful specific antibiotic prophylactic strategies for pancreatoduodenectomy. Ninety-one consecutive patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy for periampullary tumor were prospectively evaluated. Prophylactic antibiotics were selected based on… CONTINUE READING
