Abstract

Laparoscopic pancreatic resection is feasible and relatively safe without advanced laparoscopic devices. As with open resections, pancreatic fistula is the dominant morbidity. The best indications for a laparoscopic approach are benign pancreatic tumors that are not inside the neck of the pancreas and do not require pancreaticoenteric reconstruction.
