Introduction
Resection of the portal vein or superior mesenteric vein infiltrated by the pancreatic cancer is currently a standard during open pancreatic surgery for cancer. When found intraoperatively it often leads to conversion. Nowadays, research data for laparoscopic pancreatectomies with major venous resections and reconstructions are scarce.

Aim
To present our own results of laparoscopic total pancreatectomies, pancreaticoduodenectomy and distal pancreatectomies (RAMPS) performed for cancer with major venous resection and reconstructions of the portal system.

Material and methods
This is a retrospective study of our own clinical material of consecutive patients treated for adenocarcinoma of pancreas who underwent laparoscopic pancreatectomies with major venous resection and reconstruction in 2020 and 2021.

Results
The study included 6 females and 2 males in median age of 68 years (56–77). 6 tumors were located in the pancreatic head, 1 in the pancreatic neck and 1 in the pancreatic body. Surgical procedures included 5 total pancreatectomies, 2 RAMPS and 1 Whipple pancreaticoduodenectomy. There were no conversions. Median time of vascular closure was 55.5 (41–70) min. Median blood loss was 500 (250–900) ml. Median length of hospital stay (LOS) was 18.5 (11–34) days. We observed no complications related directly to vascular resection.

Conclusions
Laparoscopic approach for pancreatectomies with portal or superior mesenteric vein resections could be a safe and feasible approach in the hands of an experienced surgeon.
