Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the length of hospital stay after pancreaticoduodenectomy [ Time Frame: the day of discharge ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • early and late complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: April 2005
Study Completion Date: February 2008
Primary Completion Date: August 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Pancreaticojejunostomy has a risk factor of pancreatic fistula. Type of stent tube (external stent vs. short stent)across pancreaticojejunostomy was randomized for the patients with pancreaticoduodenectomy.
Device: external drainage tube [polyethylene pancreatic drainage tube]
External drainage tube was intubated with a 5F polyethylene pancreatic drainage tube with a small knob (Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Japan)(MD41515) across pancreaticojejunostomy in pancreaticoduodenectomy, and exteriorized through the jejunal limb.
Other Name: polyethylene pancreatic drainage tube(S/N MD41515)
Device: internal drainage tube [polyethylene pancreatic drainage tube]
Internal drainage tube was intubated 5cm length of stent tube cut a 5F polyethylene pancreatic drainage tube with a small knob across pancreaticojejunostomy in pancreaticoduodenectomy, and pancreatic juice was led to reconstructed jejunum.
Other Name: polyethylene pancreatic drainage tube(S/N MD41515)

Detailed Description:

This study compared the postoperative hospital stay and complications of lost stent with external stent after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The complications of pancreaticoduodenectomy are important to affect the postoperative course, and, a stent tube often places across pancreaticojejunostomy to reduce complications. However, there is no report that demonstrates the postoperative course between pancreatic stent types. We conducted a prospective randomized trial on 100 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy comparing external stent and lost stent.

The primary endpoint was defined as postoperative hospital stay. The secondary endpoints were mortality and morbidity, including pancreatic fistula, delayed gastric emptying, intra-abdominal hemorrhage, and intra-abdominal abscess. Patients were recruited into this study before surgery, on the basis of whether pancreatic head resection was anticipated at WMUH for pancreatic head and periampullary disease, and appropriate informed consent was obtained. Exclusion criteria was 1) patients with severe complications which were possible to prolong hospital stay, 2) patients who were diagnosed inadequacy for this study by a physician, 3) patients who could not be placed a pancreatic stent tube, and 4) patients without an informed consent.
