Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy for a mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas
This video shows a laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy.
This is the case of a woman with a cystic lesion in the body of the pancreas, diagnosed in the study of an abdominal pain.
She was submitted to a CT-scan which showed a regular, well-defined 45mm cystic lesion in the pancreatic body, with voluminous hepatic hemangiomas. The findings of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biopsy were inconclusive, with a CEA of 653ng/dL.
The patient underwent a laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy.
There were no postoperative complications. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 3.
Histological findings demonstrated the presence of a mucinous cystic neoplasm.
