The jejunal sidewall is opened for a size similar to the diameter of the pancreatic stump. A total of five to six U-sutures are applied following an inverted mattress suturing technique. The first three to four sutures go through the full-thickness of the posterior jejunal wall, from outside to inside, and through the seromuscular wall of the jejunum back to outside, inverting the seromuscular coat of the jejunum.

An incision is made in the sidewall of the jejunal loop, with a size matching the diameter of the pancreatic cut surface. The one-layered invagination end-to-side pancreatojejunostomy is performed using a mattress suturing technique. To this purpose, transpancreatic U-sutures are placed. The suturing is started at the posterior wall of the jejunum, penetrating the full-thickness of the jejunal wall from outside to inside, exciting the jejunal lumen again from the new-made opening. […]
