Spleen Preserving Laparoscopic Distal Pancreatectomy for a Solid Pseudopapillary Tumor

Contributors:  Bestoun Ahmed

Spleen preservation is advisable if feasible during distal pancreatectomy for benign pancreatic tumors. A 31 year old patient had a blunt abdominal injury. Computed Tomography (CT) scan showed an incidental tumor in the body of the pancreas. EUS-guided cytology revealed a solid pseudopapillary tumor with benign features.This video demonstrates the technical details during a minimally invasive excision of a rare tumor of the pancreas in a male patient. Very few cases have been reported in males.
