New Approach to Real-Time Monitoring after Pancreatic Surgery
Press Release of 26.02.2024
Complications after pancreatic surgery are common and can be life-threatening. One of the most serious yet common complications is postoperative pancreatic fistula. This condition is diagnosed based on increased concentrations of the pancreatic enzyme alpha-amylase in drainage secretions. Currently, the analysis of these enzymes is routinely conducted on the first and third postoperative day. Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the University Hospital Dresden (UKD) now report in the journal Biosensors and Bioelectronics (DOI: 10.1016/j.bios.2024.116034) on the development of a portable device that can carry out the enzyme determination continuously and in real time.
