Modified Blumgart Mattress Suture Versus Conventional Interrupted Suture in Pancreaticojejunostomy During Pancreaticoduodenectomy: Randomized Controlled Trial.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE:This study used a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to evaluate whether mattress suture of pancreatic parenchyma and the seromuscular layer of jejunum (modified Blumgart method) during pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) decreases the incidence of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). BACKGROUND:Several studies reported that mattress suture of Blumgart anastomosis in PJ could reduce POPF rate. This, however, is the first RCT. METHODS:Between June, 2013 and May, 2017, 224 patients scheduled for PD were enrolled in this study in Wakayama Medical University Hospital. Enrolled patients were randomized to either interrupted suture or modified Blumgart mattress suture. The primary endpoint was the incidence of grade B/C POPF based on the International Study Group on Pancreatic Fistula criteria. This RCT was registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT01898780). RESULTS:Patients were randomized to either interrupted suture (103 patients) or modified Blumgart mattress suture (107 patients) and were analyzed by intention-to-treat. Grade B/C POPF occurred in 7 patients (6.8%) in the interrupted suture group and 11 (10.3%) in the mattress suture group (P = 0.367). Mortality within 90 days was 0 in both groups. There were no significant differences in all postoperative complications between the interrupted suture group and the modified Blumgart mattress suture group. CONCLUSIONS:Mattress suture of pancreatic parenchyma and the jejunal seromuscular layer during PJ (modified Blumgart technique) did not reduce clinically relevant POPF compared with interrupted suture.
