Treatment of IPMN

Treatment of IPMN

An IPMN can develop anywhere in the pancreas: in the main duct at the head of the pancreas, in the ductal branches along the duct extending to the rail or inside the ductal branches in the depths of the organ. In most cases surgery is recommended for removal of the cyst. The surgical treatment of the pancreatic neoplasms and cancer shall be performed by surgeons who perform at least 20 and more pancreatic operations every year.

Surgical operation varies depending on the location of the pancreatic IPMN. IPMN in the tail of the pancreas is treated by the operation called as distal pancreatectomy. Treatment of the pancreatic IPMN at the head of the pancreas is performed by pancreaticoduodenectomy or Whipple procedure. In rare cases, the entire pancreas is removed in the procedure called pancreatectomy at patients with IPMN.

It is very difficult to treat IPMN revealed in the ductal branches and instrumental examinations are used instead of surgery. It is revealed that small duct type IPMNs are less harmful than the main duct IPMNs.

Experienced Pancreatic surgeons use laparoscopy or endoscopic surgery, as well as minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat pancreatic diseases. Laparoscopic pancreatic surgery is one of the operations selected by us.
