No report about the appearances of invaginated pancreatic stump in the stomach has found. Five cases of distal pancreatectomy with our new technique, invagination of pancreatic stump into stomach to prevent Pancreatic Fistula (PF) were performed. We could follow up the stump in stomach with gastrofiberscope till one year later. One week after operation, massive stump could be admitted in the stomach, however, after three months, only very small stump could be seen, and after one year, we could find only scar in the posterior wall. About the results of our procedure, although a grade A PF was occurred, all of the patients were discharged on foot within the eleventh postoperative day. Our technique could be a suitable method for patients with a pancreatic body and tail tumor.
