Abstract

In select patients with pancreatitis, pancreatectomy may be the only alternative for treatment of abdominal pain. Segmental autotransplantation of the distal pancreas to the thigh has been shown to be successful in preventing or reducing the severity of diabetes following pancreatectomy. We present the postoperative anatomy and potential complications identified on cross-sectional imaging.
