Whipple's pancreaticoduodenectomy, also known as a pancreaticoduodenectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the head of the pancreas, the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), the gallbladder, and part of the bile duct. This procedure is typically performed as a treatment for tumors or other abnormalities in the head of pancreas or surrounding areas.
During the surgery, the surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen and carefully removes the affected parts of the pancreas, duodenum, gallbladder, and bile duct. The remaining portions of the pancreas and bile duct are then reconnected to the small intestine, allowing for the normal flow of digestive juices and bile.
