Introduction: The pancreatic anastomosis seems to be the most difficult and dangerous anastomosis in general surgery, especially in a soft pancreas. Many techniques have been described. The techniques most often used are: anastomosis of the pancreas to the jejunum as a pancreatico-jejunostomy (duct-to-mucosa anastomosis) or as a pancreato-jejunostomy (invaginating anastomosis). Another widely used anastomosis for reconstruction after pancreatic head resection is from the stomach to the pancreas, i.e., pancreato-gastrostomy. In literature the data concerning postoperative complications (pancreatic fistula, postoperative bleeding and others) are not consistent. Indications: Reconstruction after pancreatic head resection. Procedure: Anastomosis between small intestine or stomach and the pancreas. Conclusion: There is no gold standard for pancreatic anastomosis. Thus, of the different commonly used techniques, in our opinion, the best technique for each surgeon seems to be the one that he/she is most familiar with.
