Recent studies found that pancreaticogastrostomy is associated with fewer overall complications than pancreaticojejunostomy.
This is a retrospective review of patients who underwent Whipple's at Aga Khan University Hospital and had pancreaticogastrostomy as a preferred anastomosis for pancreatic stump.
Keywords: Pancreaticogastrostomy, Pancreatic anastomosis, Pancreatic leak.
A total of 6 patients had Intraluminal gastro-intestinal haemorrhage; 2 patients had bleeding from pancreaticogastrostomy and 1 had bleeding from gastrojejunostomy site, out of these 3 patients, one was re-explored after endovascular attempts but died even after all measures and 2 patient were attempted to be managed via endovascular means but only one endeavor was successful.
Objective: To compare the results of pancreaticogastrostomy (PJ) with pancreaticojejunostomy (PG) in preventing fistula formation after pancreaticoduonectomy (PD).
5%) patients pancreaticogastrostomy was carried out.
Keywords: Pancreaticogastrostomy, Pancreaticojejunostomy, Pancreatic fistula.
for trauma: an alternative to distal pancreatectomy.
Prediction of outcome of pancreaticogastrostomy
for pain in chronic pancreatitis.
Four patients underwent a central pancreatectomy and distal pancreaticogastrostomy incorporating the residual pancreatic body and tail.
5,15,16,18,19) In this study SPENs involving the neck or body of the pancreas were resected by central pancreatectomy and re-implantation of the pancreatic remnant as a distal pancreaticojejunostomy or pancreaticogastrostomy, (5,15) with the theoretical benefit of preserving pancreatic parenchyma and spleen.
