Background : Several reports have shown the high mortality rate of pancreatic resection in patients with hemodialysis (HD), however, its long-term outcome remains unclear. In this study, we examined cases of pancreatic resection in patients with HD and conducted a literature review. Methods : Four patients with HD who underwent pancreatic resection from 2004 to 2019 were enrolled. To compare the clinicopathological variables of HD and non-HD patients, 161 non-HD patients who had undergone surgical resection for pancreatic cancer were enrolled. Results : Among four cases of pancreatic resection with HD, three cases were malignant diseases. All patients with HD had some co-morbidities (100% in HD group, 45.3% in the non-HD group) and postoperative complications (100% in the HD group, vs 46.6% in the non-HD group). Although one patient had severe postoperative complications and length of postoperative hospital stay was longer, the 30- and 90-day mortality rates were both 0% in patients with HD. However, three cases in the HD group (75%) died approximately 6 months after surgery, including one cancer-related death. Conclusions : Pancreatic surgery in patients with HD should be carefully indicated, especially pancreaticoduodenectomy or total pancreatectomy, because of the poor prognosis induced by non-cancer-related causes of death.
