“Artery-first approach” encompasses different aspects for the surgical treatment of pancreatic cancer. It is a surgical technique or set of techniques which share in common the dissection of the main arterial vasculature involved in pancreatic cancer, before any irreversible surgical step is performed. On the other hand it represents the need for a meticulous dissection of the arterial planes and clearing of the retropancreatic tissue between the superior mesenteric artery, the common hepatic artery and portal vein in an attempt to achieve R0 resections. The recent expansion of this approach is based mainly on three factors: venous involvement should not be considered a contraindication for resection, most of the pancreatic resections performed with a standard procedure may be in fact non-oncological (R1) resections and the postero-medial or vascular margin is the most frequently invaded by the tumor. This review aimed to summarize and update the artery-first approach in pancreaticoduodenectomy.
