Background: There are many surgical approaches for hyperinsulinemic hyperglycemic treatment. Subtotal pancreatectomy which has been used for many years, is abounded know due to high recurrence rate, and has been replaced by near total resection. This study focuses on “near total resection”.

Materials and Mehods: In this study 15 cases of hyper insulinemic hyperglycemia patients which has been operated since year 1985 till 2000 in the Children's Medical Center, has brought into consideration and described as a case series study.

Results: From the patients, three cases were operated by subtotal pancreatomy and all of them have had recurrence. In the remaining twelve cases, the method used was different and “near subtotal pancreatomy” were used. The recurrence rate in this group was zero and there were not also any case of sepsis. Postoperative complications were rather low and the most common postoperative finding in these patients was transient hypoglycemia.

Conclusion: Near total pancreatomy for hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia which is implemented by an expert surgeon with low complication and high cure rate, can be considered as a safe technique with high cure rate and satisfactory results.
