Intra-Arterial Vasopressin in Post-Pancreatectomy Hemorrhage: Re-Familiarizing Current Surgical Trainees With a Once Novel Technique

Nikita N. Machado, Terence Jackson, Akilan Arumugham, D. Rohan Jeyarajah

Abstract


Post-pancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH) is known to be a significant cause of post-operative morbidity. In this article we discuss the utility of intra-arterial vasopressin infusion in controlling PPH that is not amenable to more traditional methods of endoscopic or interventional radiology (IR) interventions. While not considered one of the first-line modalities, intra-arterial vasopressin finds a role in specific cases; and our aim is to familiarize current surgical trainees with this treatment modality, which can prove invaluable in challenging clinical situations.
