HPB Surg. 1994;8(1):9-11; discussion 12. doi: 10.1155/1994/56303.


"Split" pancreaticojejunostomy is a procedure consisting of vertical transection of the pancreas and anastomosis of both sides of the cut pancreatic duct with an interposed, Roux-en-Y jejunal loop. In this paper we report the long term results of this procedure in the treatment of eight patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP).
