Pancreaticojejunostomy. Report of a 25 year experience

, : Pancreaticojejunostomy. Report of a 25 year experience. American Journal of Surgery 145(5): 567-570

Surgical therapy for 88 patients operated on between 1958 and 1982 has been reviewed. Ninety-three operative procedures were performed including pancreaticojejunostomy in 56, pancreaticocystojejunostomy in 12, pancreaticojejunostomy with resection of less than 10 percent of the pancreas in 16, and pancreaticojejunostomy with resection of more than 50 percent of the pancreas in 9. Operative mortality was 7.5 percent and operative morbidity was 25 percent. Overall, 63 percent of the patients had an excellent or good result in the postoperative follow-up period which averaged 4 years. In the nonalcohol-induced pancreatitis group, ductal diameter was a good predictor of postoperative success, whereas in the alcoholic patient population, abstinence from further alcohol intake was a more accurate predictor of the success of pancreatic drainage.

For many orthopaedic disorders, symptoms correlate with disease severity. The objective of this study was to determine if pain level is related to the severity of rotator cuff disorders. A cohort of 393 subjects with an atraumatic symptomatic full...
