Oncologic resections of the second and third portions of the duodenum (D2 and D3) via partial duodenectomy can pose a challenging clinical problem. The duodenum must be repaired primarily or reconstructed. We have adopted a method of reconstruction using a Roux-en-Y duodenojejunostomy (D-J) in patients with extensive duodenal wall loss. We report our results in the first series of these cases. A retrospective review of patients who underwent post partial duodenectomy with reconstruction between June 2004 and March 2014 was performed. Five patients underwent partial duodenectomy with reconstruction. Two had resection for extrinsic tumors (colonic adenocarcinoma). Three had intrinsic duodenal tumors (one tubular adenoma, one adenocarcinoma and one gastrointestinal stromal tumor). All patients were reconstructed via retrocolic Roux-en-Y D-J. Mean estimated blood loss was 470 mL with median length of stay of 11 days. Post-operative complications included three intra-abdominal abscesses, one superficial wound infection and one gastrointestinal bleed. There were no anastomotic leaks, injuries to the ampulla of Vater or mortalities. In conclusion, partial duodenectomy of lateral D2/D3 with Roux-en-Y D-J is a relatively safe and effective alternative to partial duodenectomy with primary repair or pancreaticoduodenectomy for certain tumors of the duodenum.
