OBJECTIVES: Pancreatic surgery has been greatly influenced by the advent of laparoscopic surgery and increasing experience
in its performance and by advances in techniques and surgical devices. This study aimed to represent two centers’
initial experiences in laparoscopic distal pancreatic surgery.
METHODS: This study was a bi-centric study including 30 patients undergoing distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic disorders.
All the patients were operated on from November 2006 to November 2013 in Turkey and Spain.
RESULTS: Laparoscopic spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy was performed in 9 patients, laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy
was performed in 14 patients, laparoscopic enucleation was performed in 4 patients, and single-incision laparoscopic
distal pancreatosplenectomy with splenectomy was performed in 3 patients.
CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomies for pancreatic disorders are feasible and safe procedures if performed
by experienced laparoscopic surgeons.
