Total pancreatectomy and islet autotransplantation for chronic pancreatitis: spectrum of postoperative CT findings

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Improved laboratory methods for preparing islets for autotransplantation and postoperative care for the apancreatic patient have led to a surge in centers performing total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation. Accordingly, imaging in this patient population is increasingly being performed. The purpose of this article is to review the expected normal postoperative findings unique to the procedure and common complications on dual phase CT in the immediate postoperative and long-term periods.
