With the increased experience of centers of expertise in pancreatic diseases, pancreatectomy for neoplasms has become routine, with acceptable morbidity and mortality. Improvements in imaging modalities and heightened awareness of less well-appreciated pancreatic neoplasms (non-functional neuroendocrine neoplasms, the spectrum of primary cystic neoplasms of the pancreas, and especially intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms) has increased the visibility of formal pancreatectomy. The following sections address specific types of anatomic pancreatic resections.
