Abstract

Total laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is a highly complex procedure. Evidence suggests laparoscopic- assisted PD (LAPD) might be an important link in the process of transition from open PD to total laparoscopic PD. We present the first successful LAPD in a female patient with distal cholangiocarcinoma at Songklanagarind Hospital, Thailand in July 2018. The postoperative course was satisfactory without the clinical relevance of complications. No evidence of recurrence was found after 35 months of follow-up. The results ensured the feasibility and safety of LAPD in the initial phase; regarding both complications and oncological outcomes in a high-volume center for open PD.
