Abstract

Background: There is increasing evidence demonstrating the safety, feasibility and improved postoperative recovery of laparoscopic pancreas resections. The purpose of this study is to review recent advances in laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) and minimally invasive pancreaticoduodenectomy (MIPD) with an emphasis on laparoscopic technique, intraoperative outcomes, perioperative outcomes, and oncologic outcomes.
