BACKGROUND: The study aim was to evaluate if diverting drainage of bile and pancreatic secretions with an isolated Roux loop technique helps to decrease the rate of postoperative morbidity and mortality, in particular postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF).
METHODS: A prospectively maintained database between 2006 and 2018 was reviewed. Patients who underwent primary elective pancreaticoduodenectomy were included. Two types of reconstruction methods were compared: single loop (SJL) reconstruction (28 patients) and isolated Roux-en-Y (DJL) reconstruction (36 patients). Demographic characteristics and perioperative results were compared between the two groups.
RESULTS: This study includes 64 patients. The average duration of surgery was 308 mins; it was longer for DJL (P<0.0001). Major postoperative complications were seen in 24 patients (9 in SJL; 15 in DJL) without statistically significant difference. The most frequent complication that occurred was PJ anastomosis failure (4 in SJL; 6 in DJL). The choice of postoperative complication management was not related to surgical reconstruction technique (P=0.389). Length of hospital stay in DJL was significantly longer than in SJL (P=0.04).
CONCLUSIONS: No significant advantage of one technique over the other was found. In our opinion, surgeons should choose the approach with which they have the most experience and ease.
