Laparoscopic splenopancreatectomy for a solid pseudopapillary pancreatic tumor
The solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas, also known as Frantz’s tumor, is an uncommon occurrence usually seen in younger women. It is usually of low grade malignity and most patients have no recurrence after successful surgical resection.
In the last few years, laparoscopic approach to resection procedures for benign pathologies or low-grade malignancies of the pancreas has been increasingly used. The traditional surgical approach to the distal pancreas requires large abdominal incisions because of the deep position of the gland, and entails possible postoperative complications such as wound infections and incisional hernia.
In this video, we present a laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy for a localized tumor of the tail of the pancreas. It shows some steps, which could simplify the technique and prevent some complications as bleeding or postoperative fistula.

Duodenopancreatectomy: potentialities of the laparoscopic approach in the mobilization, dissection, and resection stages of the procedure
This video demonstrates the laparoscopic approach of a cephalic
duodenopancreatectomy in a 70-year-old patient presenting with an
adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head. Using 4 ports, the duodenum is completely detached. The unciform process is prepared posteriorly by dissecting the superior mesenteric artery and the portal vein in its right lower section. A total lymph node resection and an antrectomy have been performed, followed by the resection of the pancreatic body. Last but not least, the small bowel is divided and the duodenum is de-crossed. The dissection shows the different steps of the procedure with extra details.
