Description

The pancreas is a medium retroperitoneal organ, slightly flattened and tapered, located transversally in front of the main vessels, at the level of the first or second lumbar vertebra. It has to be considered a quite fixed posterior organ. It presents a sligthly oblique shape extending left-upward, with the cephalic portion generally in a lower position compared to the body and the tail. It lies against the vertebral column, which determines a slight curvature of the organ, and is surrounded by soft retroperitoneal and peritoneal tissue.
