Central pancreatectomy for the resection of benign or low malignant potential neoplasms

Academic Article


  • Central pancreatectomy is an uncommonly performed procedure that may be particularly useful for the removal of benign and low malignant potential lesions in the neck and body of the pancreas. This procedure may have fewer major complications and better preserve endocrine and exocrine function than the more commonly performed pancreaticoduodenectomy or distal pancreatectomy. We report our recent experience with central pancreatectomy and review the literature on this topic.
