Total pancreatectomy with primary mesenteric vascular reconstruction.

PMID:  165739     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Total pancreaticoduodenectomy with resection of the superior mesenteric artery and vein was performed in a sixty-two year old man with islet cell carcinoma of the pancreas. Arterial reconstruction was accomplished with an aortomesenteric interposition Dacron graft. The venous system was reanastomosed primarily, the infrapancreatic superior mesenteric vein to the portal vein in the hepatic hilum. This procedure, although it did not result in long-term survival, demonstrates the technical feasibility of wide regional resection for tumors of the pancreas impinging upon the mesenteric vasculature in the region of the neck and uncinate process.
