OBJECTIVE. Surgery is increasingly undertaken for intractable chronic pancreatitis. We evaluated the postsurgical anatomy and complications of surgical options including Whipple, Puestow, Frey's, and Beger's procedures. CONCLUSIONS. Knowledge of postsurgical anatomy is important to avoid misdiagnosing expected anatomy as complications on CT examinations. It is important to carefully assess the upper abdominal arteries to detect subtle but potentially lethal complications.
