    The value of spleen preservation during distal pancreatectomy (DP) still remains controversial. Spleen-preserving DP with excision of the splenic artery and vein is a simplified technique for spleen preservation. The aim of this study was to compare the postoperative course of DP with or without...

    It was clear and well accepted that splenectomy results in loss of significant defence functions of the body predisposing the patient to life-threatening sepsis. The evidence led to the condition that the use of total splenectomy greatly curtailed and the splenic preservation, splenorrhaphy,...

    Prepancreatic portal vein is an unusual condition. Around 100 cases of prepancreatic preduodenal portal vein have been reported. But only 11 cases of prepancreatic postduodenal portal vein have been reported till now. Here, we report a peculiar case of prepancreatic formation of portal vein...
