The authors report a case of pancreatic neck rupture in a 45-year-old female patient due to blunt trauma in a car crash. An emergency laparotomy was performed and the pancreatic head side was sutured, whereas the left side was anastomosed to a Roux-en-Y jejunal loop. The aim of this report is to emphasize the advantages of conservative surgery with internal drainage. This technique has been described for benign pancreatic tumours and protects the patient against exocrine and/or endocrine insufficiency.
