Abstract

Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) is technically feasible, but its safety is still controversial. Pancreas texture and the small size of the main pancreatic duct indicate laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) as a challenging procedure. Thus, LPD could be a risk factor for postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF), longer hospital stay, and delayed adjuvant chemotherapy that affects long-term oncologic outcome. So, it is important to promote education on LPD especially techniques for pancreaticojejunostomy. A porcine model for duct-to-mucosa pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) (Yonsei-PJDTM) was developed, and details of the model will be described in this report.
