Robotic-Assisted Central Pancreatectomy for a Solid Pseudopapillary Neoplasm of the Pancreas: Clinical Case and Literature Review

Almost all the pancreatic resections are amenable to be managed robotically, including the highly demanding central pancreatectomy. This single case describes our initial experience in performing a robotic central pancreatectomy. This technique was employed to resect a solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of the pancreatic neck diagnosed in 49-years-old women during routine staging for a synchronous breast cancer. A review of the literature about central pancreatectomy for the various facets of the procedure is also provided.
