Mucosectomy is performed on the distal 2 cm of the jejunal stump before the anastomotic procedure is started. The pancreatic capsule is anchored to the full-thickness of the jejunal wall. To do so, two sutures are applied to the superior and inferior margins of the pancreatic capsule, 1.5 cm away from the cut end of the pancreas.
