The pancreas is an important organ of the body, critical for digestion and endocrine function. Pancreatic surgery is performed either to address conditions causing inflammation such as pancreatitis or to treat tumors. Pancreatitis may either be acute or chronic, and may require surgery when pancreatic tissue atrophies or becomes infected. Pancreatic tumors can be benign or malignant. The surgical management of these typically involves removing the diseased section of the pancreas. The most common form of pancreatic surgery is Whipple surgery, which is done to remove cancerous tumors from the head of the pancreas. Pancreas transplantation may be performed in an insulin-dependent diabetic patient. After the successful completion of pancreatic surgery, post-surgical difficulties may arise which require careful monitoring by a health care team. This book provides comprehensive insights into the clinical principles and practices of pancreatic surgery. It will also provide interesting topics for research, which interested readers can take up. Scientists and students actively engaged in this field will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.
