Abstract: The early postoperative results of pancreatoduodenectomy performed in our institute during the last 20 years were reviewed, dividing the cases into two groups, from 1970 to 1979 and from 1980 to 1989. Among a total of 136 pancreatoduodenctomies, 52 were performed in the earlier decade and 84 in the latter decade. Patients were significantly older in the latter than in the earlier decade. In the earlier decade, postoperative complications developed in 28.8% of the patients with a 19.2% overall mortality rate. In the latter decade, the complications occurred in 27.4% with a 6.0% mortality rate. There was a significant decrease in overall mortality rate between the two decades. The most common complication was the dehiscence of pancreatojejunostmy, but life-threatening major leakage was decreased. It was considered that recent improvements in surgical techniques and intraoperative and perioperative management contributed to the improvement of the results of this procedure. However, continuing efforts are needed to reduce the morbidity rate, which remains high.
