Aim: To evaluate the short-term outcomes of elective pancreatic surgeries
Study design: A cross-sectional study
Place and Duration: This study was conducted at Suleman Roshan Medical College Tando Adam Pakistan from June 2020 to June 2021.
Methodology: A total of 50 patients were enrolled. The information was entered into a pre-designed proforma to determine the need for elective pancreatic surgery, describe the pathological basis and types of pancreatic operations performed, and evaluate the short-term outcomes of multiple pancreatic surgeries in terms of side effects, death rates, and Complications.
Results: The study examined 50 patients who received a hospital-based elective pancreatic surgery for various reasons. According to histology, most of the tumors (47.6 %, n=10) were pancreatic head carcinomas. The most common complication was delayed stomach emptying (DGE) (33%, n=7), which was followed by post-pancreatic haemorrhage (PPH) (23%, n=5), postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) (19%, n=4) surgical site infection (14% n=3), and intra-abdominal abscess (IAA) (9.5%, n=2).
Conclusion: The most common indication for pancreatic resections was pancreatic head carcinoma. The most frequent and severe consequences were delayed stomach emptying, post-pancreatic hemorrhage, postoperative pancreatic fistula, and surgical site infection
