Abstract

The Kausch-Whipple operation is the standard procedure for resection of pancreatic head cancer, distal bile duct cancer, and periampullary cancers. It is also used for some cases of chronic pancreatitis. Traditionally, this operation is associated with high perioperative morbidity and mortality. The aim of our study was to present our current technique for Kausch-Whipple pancreaticoduodenectomy and to demonstrate that acceptable perioperative and long-term outcomes can be achieved by a standardised technique in a high-volume centre.
