Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Minimally invasive surgical approaches have only recently been applied to pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

DISCUSSION:

Significant apprehension exists that minimally invasive pancreatic surgery will not lead to equivalent or superior oncologic outcomes compared to traditional surgical approaches. This is the first case report of a port-site recurrence following laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy.
