This illustration shows the organs which remain after a Whipple’s operation. These are the liver, the upper part of the stomach, part of the common bile duct, the small bowel and the tail of the pancreas. The diagram shows how the surgeon attaches them during surgery. The remaining stomach and bile duct are attached to the small bowel. The remaining tail of pancreas is attached slightly further down to the small bowel.
