    Distal pancreatectomy with spleen preservation may be the preferred procedure for certain benign tumors and cystic lesions of the pancreatic body or tail. Alternatively, laparoscopic removal including either distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy or splenic-preservation with ligation of the...

    It is difficult to exclude the possibility of malignancy of pancreatic cystic tumors because a biopsy of the pancreas is hard to obtain. The indication of open surgery for those cystic tumors without evidence of malignancy is controversial. Therefore, laparoscopic or laparoscopically assisted...

    Background: Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy to conserve the spleen is a beneficial operation for patients with benign and borderline malignancy in the pancreas. With this procedure, it is very desirable to preserve the splenic artery and vein as well.Methods: From...

    Purpose: To reduce the risks associated with splenectomy, there has been a trend toward splenic preservation when performing distal pancreatectomy. Although laparoscopy has gained almost universal acceptance, it is still not utilized often for pancreatic surgery in children. In fact, review of...

    Though laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy for benign conditions was first described in the early 1990s, it has not become as popular as other laparoscopic surgeries. Published literature on this topic consists of several case reports and a handful of small series. We present our experience,...

    Background: The technique of distal pancreatectomy has been well described, both with en bloc resection of the spleen and with splenic preservation. Splenic preservation during pancreatic tail resection is desirable when oncologically appropriate, yet it is technically challenging,...

    Pancreas divisum is an embryologic anomaly of the pancreas that is characterized by a lack of fusion of the dorsal and ventral pancreatic ducts. It is rarely associated with pancreatic neoplasms. We report herein a rare association of pancreas divisum and serous cystadenoma of the pancreas. A...

    We herein report a case of pancreatic serous cystadenoma in a patient who presented with jaundice, and we provide a review of the literature. A 53-year-old man was admitted with complaints of jaundice and weight loss. With a preoperative diagnosis of pancreatic serous cystadenoma with...

    Background: Laparoscopic pancreatic surgery still is not a common procedure worldwide. Postoperative complications such as a pancreatic leakage cause a serious condition. We report our consecutive laparoscopic pancreatic resections of islet cell tumors or benign diseases and their outcomes....
