Abstract

Digestive and nutritional alterations are a common occurrence after pancreatic resections. The authors report the results of a multiparametric evaluation performed in a group of 26 patients submitted to total or cephalic pancreatectomy. Patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical procedure; group A (n = 13) included gastroresected patients and group B (n = 13) included those submitted to pylorus-sparing pancreatic resection. Subclinical digestive and absorptive impairment has been found in 61.5% of group A patients; the nutritional status was clinically poor in four cases from the same group. Digestive alterations have also been found in 69.2% of group B cases, but nutritional status was always satisfactory in the whole group. The more positive results obtained with the pylorus-sparing technique encourage wider adoption of this procedure.
