Binding pancreaticojejunostomy (BPJ) has been widely used in China; however, when the stump of the pancreas remnant is too large, it might be difficult to insert it into the lumen of the jejunum [1, 2]. In order to solve this problem, a new procedure called binding pancreaticogastrostomy (BPG) has been designed by the author and classified it into four types [1, 2] (Fig. 30.1).
