Özet

Purpose: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (the Whipple procedure) is the only potential curative treatment for periampullary tumours. Although mortality due to the procedure is gradually decreasing, the morbidity rates remain high. This study aimed to evaluate early computed tomography (CT) findings in patients suspected of complications following the Whipple procedure.
