Gastrectomy With or Without Drainage (ADiGe)?

2020-01-21 11:32:39 | BioPortfolio


Prophylactic use of anastomotic drain in upper gastrointestinal surgery has been questioned in the last 15 years but only small studies have been conducted. In 2015 a Cochrane meta analysis on four Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT) concluded that there was no convincing evidence to the routine drain placement in gastrectomy. Nevertheless the Authors evidenced the moderate/low methodological quality of the included studies and highlighted how 3 out of four came from Eastern countries. Despite the above mentioned limits, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) society published the guidelines for gastrectomy that strongly recommend, with high evidence level, to avoid routine use of drain in gastric surgery. After 2015 some other retrospective studies have been published, all with inconsistent results. Our objective is to perform a multicentre prospective trial in a large western cohort of patients to establish wether avoid routine use of anastomotic drain does not led to an increasing of postoperative invasive procedure.
