Özet

Soft pancreas is one of the most important risk factor for postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreatoduodenectomy. The aim of this study is to investigate whether pancreatic attenuation index utilized to assess the pancreatic texture with computed tomography can be used to predict the risk of developing a clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreatoduodenectomy.
