Abstract

The goals of surgical treatment of most pancreatic pseudocysts are to provide a pathway of internal (enteric) drainage of the leaking exocrine secretions to allow the pseudocyst cavity to collapse, thereby either sealing off the ductal leak or creating a permanent internal fistula for drainage. Internal drainage includes cystogastrostomy, cystojejunostomy, and less commonly cystoduodenostomy. Internal drainage can also be accomplished by endoscopic cystogastrostomy or cystoduodenostomy in selected patients.
