Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: In this study, we aimed to investigate the factors related to postoperative mortality after pancreatoduodenectomy in our clinic.
Materials and Methods: Patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy due to a periampullary region tumor between 2010 and 2019 were included in the study. Mortality that occurred within 30 days after PD was defined as postoperative mortality and groups were formed according to this definition Group 1(Postoperative Mortality) and Group 2(No mortality). The demographic and clinical features, laboratory parameters, and tumor features of the patients were compared between the groups. Risk factors for mortality were analyzed by univariate analysis and multivariate logistic regression analysis.
Results: 155 patients participated in our study. We found our postoperative mortality rate as 11.6%. Accordingly, Group 1 consisted of 18 and Group 2 consisted of 137 patients. The sex was similar (p: 0.235). The average age was higher in Group 1 than 2 (71.2 vs 63.7, p:0.013). Tumor localizations were similar in groups (p:0.275). Lymph node positivity was similar in the groups (50% vs 41.6%, p:0.333). The pancreatic fistula was higher in Group 1, but not statistically significant (33% vs 18.2%, p:0.119). Preoperative white blood cell count (9490 mm3 vs 8050 mm3) and neutrophil count (6898 mm3 vs5442 mm3) were higher in Group 1. In multivariate analysis, no parameters were single-handedly risk factors.
Conclusion: No factor was found to be effective alone in the development of mortality after pancreaticoduodenectomy. We think that postoperative mortality may decrease by revealing the factors in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative periods.

Keywords: Pancreaticoduodenectomy; postoperative mortality; prognosis
