The edge of the stump is tightly wrapped around using an absorbable or non-absorbable mesh with a width of 1.0-1.5 cm and a length that matches the circumferential length of the pancreas. The mesh is placed about 1.0 cm from the cut margin of the pancreas and can be fixed onto the pancreatic capsule with a few stitches.
