Pancreatic enucleation (PE) is a viable option for the removal of non-malignant pancreatic masses leading to complete preservation of organ function. Nevertheless, PE is associated with substantial rates of post-operative pancreatic fistula (POPF), particularly when the mass is close to the main pancreatic duct (MPD). Preoperative stenting of the MPD may prevent its injury when performing PE. This paper describes a novel technique of "deep" PE preceded by endoscopic stenting of the MPD.

Abstract

Pancreatic enucleation (PE) is a viable option for the removal of non-malignant pancreatic masses leading to complete preservation of organ function. Nevertheless, PE is associated with substantial rates of post-operative pancreatic fistula (POPF), particularly when the mass is close to the main pancreatic duct (MPD). Preoperative stenting of the MPD may prevent its injury when performing PE. This paper describes a novel technique of "deep" PE preceded by endoscopic stenting of the MPD.
