Fistula Risk Score Calculator

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:

Gland Texture
Pancreatic duct diameter, mm
Intraoperative blood loss, mL

Calculated Fistula Risk Score
Predicted Clinically Relevant Fistula Rate for Risk Score
Fistula Risk Zone     
Predicted Clinically Relevant Fistula Rate for Risk Zone

*Figures calculated from 4200 PD from multiple institutions worldwide
