Pancreas-sparing duodenectomy

Claus F. Eisenberger, Michael G. Sarr

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Pancreas-sparing duodenectomy (PSD) is reserved for premalignant lesions of the duodenum and the papilla of Vater, when local excision is not appropriate due to the size or multiplicity of the lesions. PSD involves complete or near complete resection of the duodenum with total preservation of the pancreas. Although the duodenum and the pancreas share the same blood supply, the duodenum may be resected without compromising the viability of the pancreas, but reinsertion of the bile and pancreatic duct into a neoduodenum is necessary.
