Pancreatic Transection-MRI

Complete pancreatic transection is rare and usually occurs in the line of superior mesenteric vessels at the neck of the gland, though it has been reported to occur in the body or tail of the pancreas.  These patients may have associated injury to superior mesenteric portal vein axis and pancreatic ducts.  Early surgical intervention in patients with pancreatic neck transection and ductal disruption reduces pancreas related morbidity.Note the complete transection between head and neck of pancreas with a rounded fluid collection separating the two fractured fragments.
