Abstract

Pancreatic pseudocysts persisting beyond six weeks needs decompression, specially when they are larger than 6cm and symptomatic. Cysto-gastrostomy is the treatment of choice. This may be done by open, laparoscopic or endoscopic methods. Endoscopic cystogastrostomy has the least morbidity. Ultrasound guided aspiration causes lesser morbidity but has a higher incidence of recurrence. We compare six patients with pseudocysts treated by aspiration and cystogastrostomy; open, laparoscopic and endoscopic.
