Abstract: When a branch-type IPMN of the uncinate process is concomitant with ductal carcinoma of the body of the pancreas, total pancreatectomy may be recommended. However, a decrease in quality of life becomes a serious problem after total pancreatectomy because of the abolition of endocrine and exocrine pancreatic function. We proposed the combined resection, which consists of resection of the uncinate process of the pancreas with distal pancreatectomy. This surgical procedure of combined resection is most suitable for preservation of the pancreatic functions. In addition, we recommend the pancreatic duct-navigation surgery to enable us to prevent injury to the main pancreatic duct, and to dissect at the optimal cutting point of the pancreatic branch duct.
