  • To demonstrate that fibrin-coated collagen patch (TachoSil®) significantly decreases postoperative pancreatic leakage and prevents pancreatic fistula formation in patients undergoing partial pancreatoduodenectomy with pancreato-enteric anastomosis

Secondary objectives:

To demonstrate superior efficacy of fibrin-coated collagen patch (TachoSil®) in patients undergoing partial pancreato-duodenectomy, measured by

  • any condition / complication in association with pancreatic fistula formation according to the clinical severity grading classification of pancreatic fistula (Grades A – C)
  • the daily amount of fluid from the drainage and its content of amylase and lipase at predefined timepoints
  • the time (days) until drain removal and until fistula closure
  • surgery associated and any other perioperative complications
