The Fistula Risk Score (FRS) is a ten point score predicting risk of developing ISGPF (grades B/C) clinically relevant pancreatic fistulas following pancreatoduodenectomy (only). The following four factors are required for this calculation:
*Figures calculated from 4200 PD from multiple institutions worldwide
