Distal pancreatectomy with resection of the celiac axis can increase resectability of carcinoma of the body and tail of the pancreas. We performed reconstruction of the hepatic artery to avoid complications caused by a decrease in hepatic arterial flow. We carried out distal pancreatectomy with resection of the celiac axis for carcinoma of the body and tail of the pancreas in four patients. When pulsation in the proper hepatic artery was weak after occlusion of the celiac axis, we performed… CONTINUE READING
