Of the 29 patients who underwent surgical interventions, 16 (55.2%) underwent pancreatic necrosectomy debridement, including laparotomy and laparoscopy assisted, 4 (13.8%) underwent percutaneous catheter drainage (PCD), and 9 (34.5%) underwent pancreatoduodenectomy (Whipple procedure).

Severe exocrine insufficiency has been reported more often after left-sided pancreatic resection than the following standard pancreatoduodenectomy. Tumor enucleation and middle segmental pancreatic resection (MSPR) were suggested by Beger et al .,[1] especially for pancreatic benign tumors located in the neck and body of the pancreas.
