Abstract

Background: Demand for pancreatic surgery is rising, occasionally necessitating consecutive PDs to be performed by a single surgeon in the same workday. The safety of this practice is unknown. Methods: Institutional prospective ACS-NSQIP data were reviewed for PDs (2013–2017). Instances where a single surgeon performed two PDs in the same day were a PD pair (PD1, PD2) and compared with univariable analysis. Paired vs. unpaired-PD matched analyses were performed. Results: 661 PDs (25-PD pairs) were performed. PD1 and PD2 revealed similar infectious (12% vs16%), pulmonary (8% vs8%), cardiovascular (12% vs4%), and aggregate (24% vs24%) morbidity (P>0.05). Pancreatic fistula (B + C 0%), delayed gastric emptying (4% vs12%), hospital stay (9.3 vs8.8 days), and 30-day mortality (4% vs4%) were similar (P > 0.05). Matched outcomes were similar except higher cardiovascular morbidity for paired vs. unpaired PD (7% vs0%; P = 0.015). Conclusion: With proper patient selection, and in experienced hands at high-volume centers, two consecutive open PDs may be safely performed.
