[Organ preservation by reconstruction of Wirsung's duct in complete pancreas rupture].

Abstract

Blunt abdominal traumas with pancreatic injuries often cause partial or subtotal resection of the organ, especially when the pancreatic duct is damaged. A reconstructive method for anastomosis of the duct is reported in a case of a 9-year-old boy with complete pancreatic rupture in which the whole organ could be salvaged.
