Polyethylene glycol-coated haemostatic patch for prevention of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreatoduodenectomy: randomized clinical trial
BJS Open 2023; 7: zrad028.
Use of the patch reduced the rate of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula by 90 per cent; odds ratio 0.1, 95 per cent confidence interval 0.01 to 0.89, P=0.039, in this study that included 64 procedures.
Comment: amazing result, but relatively small series.
