ABSTRACT
The article focuses on pancreatic anastomic techniques after pancreatoduodenectomy. The fundamental techniques are the end-to-side pancreatic duct to jejunal mucosa anastomosis, the end-to-end invaginating pancreaticojejunostomy, and the end-to-side pancreaticogastrostomy. According to a pancreatic anastomic leak study group report of 1,507 patients, 87.6% of patients underwent pancreaticojejunostomy and 12.4% of patients underwent pancreaticogastrostomy. It notes that the individual experience of surgeons must be considered when choosing a technique.
