Pancreas-sparing distal duodenectomy (PSDD) is a novel surgical technique for tumors of distal duodenum below the ampulla to achieve oncologically free margins and avoid multiple anastomoses. We report PSDD performed in five cases, three duodenal adenocarcinoma, and two neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Three patients had adenocarcinoma of D3 and D4 with free ampulla. PSDD was performed with total excision of regional nodes.
Pancreas-sparing distal duodenectomy (PSDD) was performed in 14 patients with infrapapillary duodenal neoplasms between 1991-2002, and the clinical outcome is reviewed. The operation entails careful separation of the lower pancreatic head from D(3), complete mobilisation of the ligament of Treitz and end-to-end duodenojejunal anastomosis 1-3 cm below the major duodenal papilla. There were 9 men and 5 women of median age 56 years, who presented with iron-deficiency anaemia (n = 8), gastric outlet obstruction (n = 4), anaemia and gastric outlet obstruction (n = 1), epigastric pain or mass (1 each).
