Abstract

OBJECTIVE. We describe the indications, surgical technique, outcome, and imaging findings in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) treated with distal pancreatectomy and celiac artery resection (modified Appleby procedure). CONCLUSION. Distal pancreatectomy and celiac artery resection is a feasible surgery in selected patients with locally advanced PDAC. Knowledge of surgical technique and imaging features may aid radiologists in identifying patients with locally invasive PDAC who might benefit from resection and identifying characteristic distal pancreatectomy and celiac artery resection complications.
