During pancreatoduodenectomy (PD), two techniques have been described to dissect the head of pancreas, viz. the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) approach by dissecting the uncinate process and the uncinate process first approach. Forty-four consecutive patients, who underwent PD between June 2009 and April 2010, were analyzed. Thirty patients underwent the SMA first approach along with uncinate dissection (group 1), while 14 patients underwent the uncinate process first approach (group 2… CONTINUE READING
