Pancreatic surgery, especially pancreaticoduodenectomy, requires the resection and reconstruction of multiple organs which is a technical challenge. Fine surgical techniques are warranted to reach the R0 resection and reduce morbidity and mortality. However, due to the complicated anatomy and surgical procedure, the postoperative complication of pancreatic resection remains high. Thus, current techniques for pancreatic surgery still need to be optimized to increase the resectability and decrease the postoperative complication. This article intends to provide an overview of techniques for pancreatic surgery.
