The three port laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy with spleen preservation is a reduced port techinque in laparoscopy. This techinque has the advantage that is less traumatic than the fourth port standard techinque for pancreatic surgery and in spite of being a complex surgery it is feasible for dissection, resection and for suturing without injuring and preserving the spleen vessels resulting in a better quality of life. This techinque demostrates that the reduced port laparoscopy con be done without altering the final result in pancreatic surgery.
