Pancreatic cutaneous fistulas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The incidence, complications, and clinical course of 35 patients with pancreatic cutaneous fistulas were reviewed. After extensive surgical procedures upon the pancreas, the incidence of fistula formation was in the range of 20%. The major complications accompanying pancreatic cutaneous fistulas were sepsis as well as fluid and electrolyte problems. High output fistulas were just as likely to close spontaneously as were low output fistulas, but a major complication was more apt to occur with a high output fistula. Since most pancreatic cutaneous fistulas will close spontaneously, of prime management concern is the avoidance of complications.
