Within two weeks of diagnosis, Hollister was in an operating room for a pancreaticoduodenectomy
, commonly known as Whipple surgery.
(20) Although this position is not universally accepted, (22) a study in the Journal of Surgery showed that oral pancreatic supplementation resulted in improved enzyme and growth levels for children who had a pancreaticoduodenectomy
. (23) Research has suggested that bovine glandulars may be helpful for thyroid support, (24) myoclonic seizures, (25) and even CHARGE syndrome.
The patient underwent radical Whipple procedure (pancreaticoduodenectomy
The patient underwent a pancreaticoduodenectomy
Thus, it is firmly believed that the most important factor associated with the risk of bleeding is pancreatic fistula after pancreaticoduodenectomy
(10) and pancreatic necrosectomy (11).
Perineural and intraneural invasion in posttherapy pancreaticoduodenectomy
specimens predicts poor prognosis in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
Three-dimensional digital models were created of specimens in the fixed state, from a pancreaticoduodenectomy
(Figure 2, A; Supplemental Figure 1 [see supplemental digital content containing 4 figures at www.
Complicating factors included the following: (1) changes in diagnosis specificity, such as encounter information and laterality; (2) the complete revision of procedure codes with root objectives, approaches, and body parts; (3) the absence of diagnoses in procedure codes (e.g., "aneurysm repair"); (4) the use of multiple codes to represent what conceptually was one procedure in ICD-9-CM (e.g., "radical pancreaticoduodenectomy
"); (5) the absence of eponyms (e.g., "Fontan procedure"); (6) changes in coding guidelines; and (7) the absence of an appropriate code for specific procedures (e.g., operations for certain congenital cardiac anomalies).
Minimall-Invasive vs Open Pancreaticoduodenectomy
: Systemic Review and Meta-Analysis.
In the literature, periampullary MANECs have been suggested to be treated surgically like other periampullary tumors, with pancreaticoduodenectomy
being performed whenever possible (10).
Currently, the three treatment options for ampullary lesions are pancreaticoduodenectomy
(Whipple surgery), surgical ampullectomy, and endoscopic papillectomy (EP).
