Laparoscopic pancreatectomy is currently a widely used approach for benign and malignant lesions of the pancreas.
This study aimed to describe how to perform a laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy using The Clockwise Technique.
An 18-year-old female patient presented with a well-defined tumor in the pancreatic body with 4 cm in diameter that suggested a diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary tumor (Frantz’s tumor). The patient was recommended for laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy by using The Clockwise Technique.
The clockwise, caudal-to-cephalic approach appears to have other significant technical advantages that facilitate the performance of the procedure.
A laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy performed using The Clockwise Technique provides satisfactory outcomes.
