  • 3 months of prospective enrolment and 3 months follow up within a 12-month frame.
  • Study provides highly valuable data on outcomes after pancreatic surgery.
  • Citable co-authorship for up to three collaborators per institution or senior surgeon.
  • Access the raw data for future studies.

What is it about?
