Abstract

Background

Although recent technological developments and improved endoscopic procedures have further spread the application of laparoscopic pancreatic resection, laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy still presents major technical difficulties, such as when performing pancreatic–enteric anastomosis.

Methods

Laparoscopic dunking pancreaticojejunostomy using mattress sutures was performed in 15 consecutive patients with a soft pancreas and a nondilated pancreatic duct between October 2011 and December 2012.

Results

According to the International Study Group on Pancreatic Fistula criteria, 3 patients developed PF (grade A), whereas the remaining 12 patients did not.

Conclusions

Dunking pancreaticojejunostomy using mattress sutures is considered to be a feasible and safe method for performing pure laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy.
