Twenty-two lesions were classified as type B, including lesions of the aortic arch (n=2), descending aorta (n=3), coronary artery (n=1), splenic artery (n=1), left subclavian artery (n=1), left common carotid artery (n=1), brachiocephalic trunk (n=1), aortaventralis (n=3), celiac trunk (n=3), iliac artery (n=4), renal artery (n=1), and IMA (n=1).

LSPDP can be completed in either of two methods: (1) carefully isolating the splenic artery and vein from the pancreas via separating and dividing each of the various small branches between the pancreas and these vessels (Kimura's technique) [10] or (2) taking the splenic artery and vein with the pancreas but cautiously preserving the collateral blood supply of the spleen from the short gastric and left gastroepiploic vessels (Warshaw's approach) [11].
