Surgical intervention in diseases of the pancreas is a significant problem in modern oncology. When the tumor spreads to the celiac trunk, patients are usually recognized as unresectable. In the early 50s of the 20th century, an operation was developed in the United States, which includes resection of the celiac trunk, followed by anastomosing of the hepatic artery with the aorta (Appleby operation); later, its modification was developed, which allows not performing complex reconstructive interventions, due to adequate collateral blood flow from the basin of the superior mesenteric artery. In the conditions of our clinic, for the first time, a modified Appleby operation for malignant neoplasm of the pancreatic body was performed with satisfactory immediate results.
