  Purpose

Patients undergoing whipples pancreaticoduodenectomy tend to develop delayed gastric emptying.

The study compares two types of anastamosis of stomach to jejunum (supracolic and infracolic) and compares whether it influences the gastric emptying.

The clinical evidence of delayed gastric emptying is correlated with objective evidence of liquid and solid emptying by radionuclide study.

The study also tries to evaluate whether pancreatic leak correlates with delayed gastric emptying


Condition Intervention

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Gastric Emptying assessed clinically and correlated objectively with liquid and solid emptying of radionucleotide [ Time Frame: 30 days after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Gastric emptying in the postoperative period in the form of tolerence of food and removal of ryles tube is assessed. This is correlated with liquid and solid emptying of radionucleotide


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation of pancreatic duct leak with gastric emptying [ Time Frame: 30 days after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pancreatic duct leak is correlated with gastric emptying


Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: January 2009
Study Completion Date: March 2012
Primary Completion Date: February 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Infracolic Anastamosis
The gastrojejunal anastamosis is done in the infracolic compartment
Procedure: Infracolic gastrojejunal anastamosis
Following resection in whipples pancreaticoduodenectomy, the gastrojejunal anastamosis is done in the infracolic compartment by bringing down the stomach below the mesocolon to the left of the middle colic artery
Other Name: Infracolic and retrocolic Gastrojejunostomy
Supracolic Anastamosis
The gastrojejunal anastamosis is done in the supracolic compartment
Procedure: Supracolic gastrojejunal anastamosis
Following resection in whipples pancreaticoduodenectomy, the gastrojejunal anastamosis is done in the supracolic compartment.
Other Name: Supracolic and retrocolic gastrojejunostomy
