[Gastropancreatoduodenal resection for malignant tumors, complicated with obstructive jaundice].

[Article in Russian]


The experience of 329 gastropancreatoduodenal resections for malignant tumors of the periampullary zone has been reviewed. The obstructive jaundice complicated the disease in 237 (70%) patients. The fact required various modalities of the preoperative artificial bile drainage. To evaluate the jaundice influence on the perioperative period, patients were divided in 4 groups, considering the bile drainage modality and bilirubin blood levels. The early postoperative period was respectively analyzed, which led to the conclusion that bilirubin blood level has no influence on either intraoperative characteristics or postoperative morbidity and mortality. For the reason of that, radical treatment of the periampullary cancer, complicated by the obstructive jaundice, does not require preoperative bile drainage.
