|Official Title:||Clinical Randomized Trial Investigating a Novel Pancreaticojejunostomy Technique for Pancreaticoduodenectomy in Patients With a High Risk for Postoperative Pancreatic Fistula|

No Intervention: Conventional anastomosis
Conventional anastomosis: The pancreaticojejunostomy is carried out in a traditional way according to "Cattell's duct-to-mucosa technique".
Active Comparator: Novel anastomosis
Novel anastomosis: This the active comparator to the conventional anastomosis. A new pancreaticojejunostomy technique is used for the reconstruction. The pancreas is intubated into the jejunum.
Procedure: Pancreaticojejunostomy technique
The anastomosis between jejunum and remnant pancreas has a pivotal impact on the incidence of postoperative pancreatic fistula. by this novel technique the remnant pancreas is intubated into the jejunum without extensive manipulation.
- Clinically Relevant Postoperative Pancreatic Fistula [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 2 weeks ]Postoperative pancreatic fistula as defined by the International Study Group of Pancreatic Fistula
- Associated postoperative morbidity [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 2 weeks ]Postoperative pancreatic fistula and abscesses or fluid collections adjacent to the pancreaticojejunostomy constitute a morbidity event; pancreaticojejunostomy-associated morbidity.
- Severity of postoperative complications [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 2 weeks ]The severity of postoperative complications as classified by the classification system of postoperative complications adopted for pancreatic surgery.
