This study has been withdrawn prior to enrollment.
(Difficulties to recruit patients)

Double bypass (hepaticojejunostomy + gastrojejunostomy) is compared to stent strategy in patients planned for curative pancreatic resection in whom peroperative findings makes resection impossible.

Condition Intervention
Pancreatic Cancer Periampullary Tumor Procedure: Hepaticojejunostomy and gastroenterostomy Procedure: Stent strategy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Double Bypass vs Stent Strategy in Peroperatively Diagnosed Irresectable Pancreatic Cancer - A Prospective Randomized Multicenter Study

Further study details as provided by Göteborg University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Morbidity [ Time Frame: Day 1-30 after randomization ]
    Initial morbidity in association to the laparotomy using the Clavien-Dindo Classification.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: Preop, 1 month postop and every third month ]
    Using the EORTC:s QLQ-C30 and QLQ-PAN26 questionaries

  • Numbers of readmissions to hospital [ Time Frame: Up to two years after the laparotomy ]
  • The numbers of Surgical, Radiological or Endoscopical therapeutic re-interventions [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months after the randomization ]
    The numbers of surgical, radiological or endoscopical interventions due to jaundice or gastric outlet obstruction from date of randomization until the date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 24 months"

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: October 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Preoperatively

    • Patients with stent treated tumor in the pancreatic head or periampullary planned for pancreaticoduodenectomy
    • The patient jaundice should have worn off and there should be no signs of duodenal obstruction
    • The patient has given informed consent after verbal and written information in accordance with approved ethics application
    • The patient has no anatomical conditions making endoscopic therapy impossible such as previous Billroth II or Gastric Bypass.
  2. Intraoperatively

    • Peroperative findings of of carcinomatosis, metastases or local irresectability who oppose radical surgery
    • Surgical double bypass should be technically feasible
    • The patient has given informed consent after verbal and written information in accordance with approved ethics application

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Peroperative signs of dysfunction on biliary stent
  • Peroperative findings of gastric outlet obstruction
  • Surgical double bypass not technically feasible
