Thus, 6 male patients underwent RYFJ for PEPF during the study period.
Sometimes, the proximal pancreatic duct is strictured, preventing spontaneous fistula healing, which results in PEPF (4).
Pancreatic surgeries (resection or drainage) for PEPF require difficult dissection in inflamed and friable tissues, which lead to an increased blood loss, longer operative times, and an extended hospital stay with higher treatment costs.
The first fistulojejunostomy for PEPF was performed by Lahey and Lium in 1937 (8).
have recommended 6 to 12 weeks after identification of PEPF as the appropriate time (3).
