For patients with benign pancreatic head mass and low malignant tumors or chronic pancreatitis, pancreaticoduodenectomy is traumatic with multiple organs resection and digestive tract reconstruction, which affects postoperative internal and external secretion function significantly [1]. In order to solve this problem and improve the prognosis of patients, Dr. Beger reported the first duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection (DPPHR) in 1972 [2].
