Study Description
Brief Summary:
This study evaluated that strict control of perioperative blood glucose following pancreatic resection by using an artificial pancreas would improve postoperative surgical site infection.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pancreatic Diseases Device: the closed-loop STG-22 system (Nikkiso Inc, Tokyo, Japan) Phase 4

Detailed Description:
This study recruited 50 patients undergoing elective pancreatic resection for pancreatic diseases. Perioperative blood glucose concentration was continuously monitored using an artificial pancreas system. We prospectively divided into two groups: one for whom glucose levels were controlled using a manual injection of insulin according to the commonly used sliding scale and another that received programmed infusion of insulin determined by the control algorithm of the artificial pancreas.
