Three-dimensional remnant pancreatic volume ratio indicates postoperative pancreatic exocrine insufficiency in pancreatic cancer patients after distal pancreatectomy

Three-dimensional remnant pancreatic volume ratio indicates postoperative pancreatic exocrine insufficiency in pancreatic cancer patients after distal pancreatectomy
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.

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).
