Abstract

Low grade tumors located in the neck of the pancreas present a unique surgical challenge. Subtotal pancreatectomy results in significant loss of pancreatic gland and function, while pancreaticoduodenectomy may be too aggressive for these lesions. We present a case of a patient with a well differentiated neuroendocrine tumor in the neck of the pancreas who underwent a central pancreatectomy with pancreaticogastrostomy reconstruction. Patient selection and technical aspects of the procedure are described. The decision to perform a central pancreatectomy should not be made lightly as complications are frequent. Careful patient selection is imperative.
