  • AIM: The aim of the study was to assess the safety and feasibility of pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) using modified Pinch-Burn-Cut (PBC) technique and Harmonic FOCUS® under continuation of antiplatelet therapy in patients with high thromboembolic risks.METHODS: Consecutive 78 patients who had undergone PD using combination of modified PBC technique and HF in a tertiary care setting from 2009 to 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Among which 18 patients with high thromboembolic risks underwent preoperative aspirin continuation and were included in the study. Background and perioperative factors were described with detailed information, and the outcome variables of patients were compared between the pancreatic cancer patients (PC group) and those with the other diseases (non-PC group).
