A PROGNOSTIC SCORE TO PREDICT MAJOR COMPLICATIONS AFTER PANCREATICODUODENECTOMY.
The investigators prospectively collected in an electronic database preoperative,
intraoperative and outcome data of 700 patients undergoing PD in our Institution from 2002
to 2010. The investigators used a multivariate logistic regression analysis to create a new
score to predict severe complications defined as Clavien-Dindo classification III, IV and V.
The score was developed using a random two-thirds of the population (469 patients), and was
then validated and calibrated in the remaining third of the patients (231).
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Major Complication rate
Clavien-Dindo grade III to V complications considered as major
Postoperative. Until 30 days after discharge
