Preoperative endoscopic retrograde pancreatography and placement of an endoscopic nasopancreatic drainage catheter. Endoscopic retrograde pancreatography showed leakage of contrast medium (arrowhead) from the injured major pancreatic duct, and the pancreatic tail could not be visualized (a). A guidewire was passed across the break (arrowhead) to the distal pancreatic duct (b); however, the endoscopic nasopancreatic drainage (ENPD) catheter was not advanced across the rupture because the guidewire and catheter were warped (arrowhead) at the injury site (c). A 5-French ENPD catheter was placed at the injury site (arrowhead) preoperatively (d)
