An opening is made in the seromuscular side wall of the jejunum, with a size similar to the diameter of the pancreas. The Blumgart anastomosis is constructed by four to six transpancreatic U-sutures: two to three on each side of the main pancreatic duct. Suture-threads with a needle on both ends are used.
