One-Stage Middle-Preserving Pancreatectomy: Indications and Outcomes

Aim(s): To evaluate clinical presentation, surgical technique, histology and outcome of patients who underwent one-stage MPP.

Materials and methods: Two men of 26 and 66 years old underwent one-stage MPP in our Pancreatic Unit in 2018. Follow-up to November 2019.
