Surgical Aspect of Pancreas Transplantation

Takashi Kenmochi, Duck Jong Han

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Distal pancreatectomy for a variety of pancreatic diseases is a common general surgical procedure, but removing the distal pancreas for transplantation is somewhat different: gentle dissection is critical to diminish the risk of pancreatitis both in the (healthy) donor and in the recipient after revascularization. Vascular supply via the splenic artery and vein must be preserved.
