In a previous issue of the Journal, Zhong et al. reported a retrospective study that compared the perioperative outcomes of the mesh-reinforced pancreaticojejunostomy with conventional pancreaticojejunostomy. They concluded that mesh-reinforced pancreaticojejunostomy was a safe and effective technique, as it provided a safe anchor site for suture, thus reducing the risk of pancreatic leakage. Considering these encouraging results, we present a further simple technique using ligamentum teres hepatis wrap around pancreatojejunostomy for prevention of postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreaticoduodenectomy.
