Abstract

Introduction: Although antegrade en bloc distal pancreatectomy is appropriate for invasive distal pancreatic malignancies, this technique is not easy to perform because the end-point of deep vertical resections cannot be controlled. This report describes the usefulness of the application of hanging maneuver in performing the radical surgery. Methods: A tape for guidance is passed in a space behind the bundles of the left celiac and mesenteric plexus, followed by sagittal resection of the distal pancreas exposing the root of the celiac artery and superior mesenteric artery. After dividing the pancreas down to the level of the roots of the celiac and superior arteries, the distal pancreas is dissected from the retroperitoneum in medial to lateral fashion. Results: This technique was applied in six patients with distal pancreas malignancies, without any positive cancer cells at the resected margin. The mean tumor size was 3.0 ± 0.9 cm. The mean duration of surgery and intraoperative blood loss were 258 ± 71 min and 226 ± 240 ml, respectively. Conclusion: Antegrade en bloc distal pancreatectomy with plexus hanging maneuver is an appropriate technique for treating distal pancreatic malignancies.
