Abstract:

Thoracoscopic splanchnicectomy is a palliative procedure for the management of upper abdominal pain from unresectable pancreatic cancer and chronic pancreatitis. This procedure is performed under direct vision and it is an alternative to celiac plexus block with a higher degree of precision and with less associated morbidity. Thoracoscopic splanchnicectomy consists in identification and division of all the roots of the splahnic nerves from T5 to T10. This procedure can be repeated controlateral in case of recurrence of pain or it can be performed bilateral from the begining. Conclusion: Thoracoscopic splanchnicectomy is a safe, simple, and effective minimally invasive procedure in the pain management from unresectable pancreatic cancer.

KEY WORDS: UNRESECTABLE PANCREATIC CANCER, PALLIATION, THORACOSCOPY, SPLANCHNICECTOMY
