Abstract

Total pancreatectomy for benign disease should be considered only in highly selected patients and then only after lesser surgical procedures have failed. At present, truncal vagotomy and adequate gastrectomy should be part of the operation to prevent marginal ulceration. A multitude of undesirable problems, many requiring reoperation, may arise postoperatively and can compromise an otherwise excellent outcome with regard to pain control.
