Surgical technique in Spain enables extirpation of benign tumors of the pancreas
Date:2/3/2009

he tumours that these operations target are mainly neuroendocrine or cystic tumours of the pancreas that are benign or of low malignant potential. These lesions are diagnosed with greater frequency amongst young women, with an average age of 30, states Doctor Rotellar. Thus, the principal goal of this procedure is to obtain the optimum precision surgery in such a way that we are able to preserve the pancreas to the maximum. This is why laparoscopic central pancreatectomy is not suitable for tumours of poorer prognosis where it is paramount to operate radically in order to avoid a future regeneration of the tumour.

The importance of this surgical technique lies in managing to extirpate the minimum portion possible of the pancreas and, consequently, avoid the risk of the patient developing an intolerance to glucose or diabetes, besides any digestive problems that may arise from the lack of pancreatic enzymes, pointed out Doctor Pardo.

The surgeon also stated that laparoscopic central pancreatectomy is a pioneering technique, given its complex nature (after extirpating a portion of the pancreas, an anastomosis or union of the pancreatic duct with the intestine is carried out by laparoscopy). This joining to the intestine is necessary for the pancreas to be able to secrete its juices into it and, thus, it is a highly delicate operation.
