Abstract

Background

We showed in a previous study that pylorus-resecting pancreaticoduodenectomy (PrPD), which divides the stomach adjacent to the pylorus ring, preserves more than 95 % of the stomach and significantly reduced the incidence of delayed gastric emptying (DGE) compared with pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PpPD). However, long-term outcomes of PrPD and the adverse effect of early postoperative DGE on long-term outcomes remain unclear.

Methods

A total of 130 patients enrolled in a previous study were followed for 24 months after surgery. Primary endpoint was whether PrPD is a better surgical procedure than PpPD regarding long-term outcomes.

Results

Weight loss > grade 2 (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, Version 4.03) at 24 months after surgery was significantly better in group PrPD (16.2 %) than in group PpPD (42.2 %) (p = 0.011). Nutritional status and late postoperative complications were similar for the two groups. The incidence of weight loss > grade 2 at 24 months was 63.6 % in DGE patients with DGE and 25.3 % in non-DGE patients (p = 0.010). T max (time to peak 13CO2 content in 13C-acetate breath test) at 24 months in DGE patients was significantly delayed compared with that in non-DGE patients (27.9 ± 22.7 vs. 16.5 ± 10.1 min, p = 0.023). Serum albumin level at 24 months was higher in non-DGE patients than in those with DGE (3.7 ± 0.6 vs. 4.1 ± 0.4 g/dl, p = 0.013).

Conclusions

PrPD offers long-term outcomes similar to those of PpPD. DGE may be associated with weight loss and poor nutritional status in patients with long-term outcomes.
