Experience of 16 median resections of pancreas due to serous or mucinous benign cystic tumor (13 patients) or small afunctional neuroendocrine tumor (3 patients) is analyzed. In all the cases the pathologic process was located at the zone of pancreas isthmus. The long-term results were followed-up at 13 patients from 2 to 14 years (mean followed-up - 8 ys). There were no recurrences of tumor. It is concluded that median resection of pancreas is effective and safe surgical operation for the patients with localization of benign tumor at the zone of pancreatic istmus.
