Whipple Procedure (Pancreaticoduodenectomy)

The most frequent technique used to treat pancreatic cancer is a Pancreaticoduodenectomy, also known as the Whipple procedure. The method is named for Allen Old father Whipple, who invented it and was formerly chairman of the department of surgery at Columbia University. About 75% of pancreatic cancer tumours are found at the head of the pancreas, and it is used to treat those. The traditional Whipple and the pylorus-sparing Whipple are the two most popular forms of Whipple surgeries. The traditional Whipple procedure entails the removal of the gallbladder, part of the bile duct, the duodenum, and the head of the pancreas. In order to restore the flow of ingested material, the remaining stomach, bile duct, and pancreas are subsequently reconnected to the digestive tract. Depending on the location and histology of the tumour, a Whipple procedure normally takes 4 to 6 hours. The type of surgery needed mostly relies on where the tumour is located in your pancreas. Your doctor will advise undergoing the operation that safely preserves the most pancreases while removing the tumour and damaged tissue.
