Spleen and vessel sparing approach
01:07 PORT PLACEMENT
01:48 DIVIDING VESSELS AND DUCTS
- The patient was a 59 year old woman, with a mass found near her pancreas.
- MRI and MRCP scans indicated the mass as a mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN), with no malignant features.
- A surgical plane was indicated between the MCN and the spleen, therefore a spleen-and-vessel sparing laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy was elected as a treatment option.
