The article focuses on pylorus preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD). It notes that PPPD was initially advocated as an option to pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) in the setting of chronic pancreatitis, and later used for treating peri-ampullary malignancy. It cites that one of the major conclusions of several studies and reviews that have examined outcomes of PPPD compared to PD is that PPPD lessens operating time. It asserts that PPPD causes less blood loss in comparison to PD.
