Core Tip

Core Tip: Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is one of the most common and serious complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy. To effectively reduce the incidence of POPF, we designed a new type of pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ). The technique that we introduce in this paper is a very new kind of PJ. Our research confirmed that this new technique is simple, safe, and easy to operate, and it can effectively reduce the occurrence of POPF.
