Pancreaticojejunostomy

Pancreaticojejunostomy is a surgical procedure where the pancreatic duct, which permits drainage of digestive juices (pancreatic enzymes) from the pancreas, is opened and reconnected to the small intestine (jejunum).

Pancreaticojejunostomy is most often used as a treatment for individuals with an inflamed pancreas (chronic pancreatitis) and its accompanying pain. Chronic pancreatitis often causes the common bile duct and/or the pancreatic duct to become obstructed by mineral deposits (calculi), resulting in ongoing and severe pain.

Cysto Gastrostomy

When the decision is made to proceed with cystogastrostomy, the operative procedure is fairly simple. Two stay sutures of 3-0 silk stitch are placed in the anterior wall of the stomach after palpating the cyst to confirm the incision will be placed exactly over the primary palpable body of the pseudocyst. After these two sutures are placed on the superior and inferior margin of the anticipated gastrotomy, electrocautery is used to perform an anterior gastrotomy for a length of approximately 8 cm. After this is done, one can easily palpate the connection between the pseudocyst and the posterior wall of the stomach.
