Project Description

This animated video, intended for surgical fellows in the field of hepato-pancreatico-biliary, or HPB, surgery, introduces the viewer to the surgical plan for a total pancreatectomy procedure, with resection of the pancreas, spleen, common bile duct, a long length of portal vein, right colon and proximal portion of transverse colon, duodenum and proximal jejunum.

Tumours of the pancreas head can cause significant distortions in nearby vasculature. This video highlights the systematic division of arterial blood flow to, and around, the tumour, and depicts the distortion of portal inflow vasculature around the pancreas head and neck, communicating critical understanding of the surgical approach to trainees.
