Zwart1, Alberto Balduzzi1,3, Maarten Korrel1, Sanne Lof2, Mohammad Abu Hilal*2, Marc G. Besselink*1 1Department of Surgery, Cancer Center Amsterdam, Amsterdam UMC, University of Amsterdam, 2Department of Surgery, Southampton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, 3General and Pancreatic Surgery Department, Pancreas Institute, University and Hospital Trust of Verona Oncologically safe left pancreatectomy requires radical resection (R0), Gerota’s (perirenal) fascia resection, and adequate lymph node dissection. This study describes the technical details of laparoscopic radical left pancreatectomy (LRLP), used in the first international multicenter randomized trial comparing minimally invasive with open left pancreatectomy for pancreatic cancer, the DIPLOMA trial.
