Benign portal vein stenosis is a rare complication following pancreaticoduodenectomy. Because a direct surgical approach to the portal vein is difficult due to severe adhesions following pancreaticoduodenectomy, portal vein stent placement is considered a good treatment option. Herein, we report 3 cases of severe portal vein stenosis following pancreaticoduodenectomy that were treated with portal venous stent placement in a hybrid operating room, combining a conventional operating room with an angiography suite. High-resolution images on digital subtraction angiography provide better contrast and support accurate stent placement compared to using a mobile C-arm.
