Despite decreased postoperative mortality, pancreatic resections continue to be associated with high morbidity rates. Vascular complications and, in particular, erosive bleeding from the large retroperitoneal vasculature are particularly difficult to treat and account for a large percentage of the residual postoperative mortality of pancreatic resections. We herein analyze the pathogenesis, diagnosis, preventive measures and possible remedies of either hemorrhagic or occlusive complications of pancreatic resections through a review of the literature and of our institutional experience consisting of 818 pancreatectomies.

Abstract

Despite decreased postoperative mortality, pancreatic resections continue to be associated with high morbidity rates. Vascular complications and, in particular, erosive bleeding from the large retroperitoneal vasculature are particularly difficult to treat and account for a large percentage of the residual postoperative mortality of pancreatic resections. We herein analyze the pathogenesis, diagnosis, preventive measures and possible remedies of either hemorrhagic or occlusive complications of pancreatic resections through a review of the literature and of our institutional experience consisting of 818 pancreatectomies.
