Whipple procedures have been historically considered one of the most technically demanding operations in surgery. The introduction of the laparoscopic Whipple represents an even greater challenge, that only highly trained and selected centers in the United States have been able to master.
We present a case of a Laparoscopic Whipple performed in a patient with a pancreatic tumor in a South American Public hospital, where the opportunity to perform this type of advanced procedures is limited. This video illustrates the feasibility of performing this highly technically challenging procedure in a low resource environment public hospital.
Presented at the SAGES 2017 Annual Meeting in Houston, TX.
