Laparoendoscopic single-site lateral pancreaticojejunostomy.

BACKGROUND: Chronic pancreatitis is mainly managed with drugs, but surgery is required in selected groups of patients. The Partington procedure is still the procedure of choice for patients with a dilated main pancreatic duct but without an inflammatory pancreatic head mass. The same equivalent can be achieved by laparoscopic approach. Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery gained tremendous attention in the past few years. Complex surgeries are being reported using this technique. We report in this paper the first laparoendoscopic single-site lateral pancreaticojejunostomy (LPJ) for chronic calcific pancreatitis with dilated pancreatic duct.

PATIENT AND METHOD: The procedure was performed on a 32-year-old female diagnosed to have chronic calcific pancreatitis. A single vertical 2.5-cm umbilical incision and one 10-mm and two 5-mm ports were made. The procedure was completed in 220 min without any intraoperative complication. There were no postoperative complications, and the patient was discharged on day 5 when she started taking routine diet.

CONCLUSION: This preliminary experience suggests that single-incision laparoscopic LPJ is feasible and safe when performed by an experienced laparoscopic surgeon. It has a cosmetic advantage over laparoscopic LPJ. However, it remains to be determined if this technique offers additional advantages of decreased analgesia, decreased hospital stay or cost effectiveness. Further studies are required to analyze these factors.
