However, the specific correlation between RPV and postoperative PEI remains unclear. Here, we compare various pre-, peri-, and postoperative risk factors in a retrospective cohort to address whether preoperatively measured RPV is a predictor of postoperative PEI in pancreatic cancer patients after distal pancreatectomy (DP).

Pancreatectomy may cause serious pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI), which can lead to some nutritional problems, including new-onset diabetes mellitus (DM) or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Recent studies have reported that remnant pancreatic volume (RPV) significantly influences postoperative PEI.
