Abstract

Not only has the practice of pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) changed since the first description of the two-staged procedure by Kausch and Whipple, 1-3but so has the principles of the surgery. While vascular invasion was generally regarded as a contraindication to the performance of PD for pancreatic cancer, today these reservations are restricted mainly to arterial involvement.4•5Venous (portal and superior mesenteric vein) resections and anastomosis with or without an interposed graft are being performed the world over in centers with experience in these procedures.
