Intra‐abdominal drains are frequently used after pancreatic surgery whereas their benefit in other gastrointestinal operations has been questioned. The objective of this meta‐analysis was to compare abdominal drainage with no drainage after pancreatic surgery.
Some 711 patients from three
Pancreatic resection with, or without abdominal drainage results in similar rates of mortality, morbidity and reintervention.Read more
