Abstract

We previously reported the usefulness of distal pancreatectomy with celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) with left gastric artery (LGA) reconstruction to prevent ischemic gastropathy. To evaluate the reconstruction quality, we performed intraoperative angiography with indocyanine green (ICG)-fluorescence imaging.
