The Laparoscopic Whipple procedure or Laparoscopic Pancreaticoduodenectomy is the operation for treatment of pancreatic disease such as carcinoma or other benign disease involving the periampullary region or distal common bile duct. The procedure is one of the most complex surgical procedures, especially since it is conducted laparoscopically. There are many techniques to perform laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy. The case report described below details our decision to use laparoscopic surgery in dissection of distal stomach, common bile duct, pancreas and duodenum and the use of small incision to remove specimen and complete anastomosis.
