TY - JOUR AU - Bonavina, Luigi PY - 2019 TI - Spleen-preserving laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy: is it worthwhile? JF - Laparoscopic Surgery; July 2019 Y2 - 2019 KW - N2 - Distal pancreatic resection has been standardized in the 1990s, and since then favourable short-term results have been reported in high-volume centers (1).
