[Pancreatoduodenectomy by Whipple's method--a method of dealing with the pancreatic stump].

Abstract

Different methods of pancreatic stump management are possible to perform after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The group of 24 patients after pancreaticoduodenectomy with pancreaticojejunostomy, pancreaticogastrostomy and occlusion of the pancreatic duct by Neopren or Ethiblock were analysed. According to the literature and own results pancreatogastrostomy or occlusion of the pancreatic duct seems to be the safer procedure, but sometimes the choice is made intraoperatively.
