A clinical study of Pancreatic pseudocyst and its management: An institutional experience

  title={A clinical study of Pancreatic pseudocyst and its management: An institutional experience},
  author={Parag Wani and Hussain Ahmed and Kabir Rajkhowa},
Background: Management of pancreatic pseudocysts is associated with considerable morbidity (15– 25%).Traditionally, pancreatic pseudocysts have been drained because of the perceived risks ofcomplications including infection, rupture or haemorrhage. [] Key Method Patients treated conservatively had 3 monthly follow-up abdominal ultrasound scans (USS) for 1 year. The aetiology comprised of alcohol (28/40, 70%) gallstones (5/50,12.5%), trauma (4/40, 10%), and idiopathic (3/40, 7.5%).Twenty-five of the 40…

Pseudoquiste pancreático con drenaje percutáneo sin recidiva. A propósito de un caso

En el manejo oficial de esta paciente femenina, el drenaje percutaneo demostro ser util como primera eleccion con evolucion satisfactoria sin recidivas con el diagnostico de tumor abdominal.



Selected management of pancreatic pseudocysts: operative versus expectant management.

Overall, in patients managed by a nonoperative approach, resolution of the pseudocyst occurred in 57% of the 24 patients with satisfactory radiographic follow-up, with 38% resolving more than 6 months after diagnosis.

Management of cysts and pseudocysts complicating chronic pancreatitis. A retrospective study of 143 patients.

Endoscopic cystoenterostomy is an efficient treatment of cysts and pseudocysts complicating chronic pancreatitis when anatomical conditions are favorable and percutaneous drainage also appears to be a satisfactory treatment modality.

Timing of Surgical Drainage for Pancreatic Pseudocyst: Clinical and Chemical Criteria

It is concluded that prolonged waiting is expensive and unnecessary for pseudocysts in chronic pancreatitis when there has been no recent acute attack and pseudocyst wall has achieved sufficient maturity to allow safe internal anastomosis.

Pancreatic pseudocysts--when and how to treat?

Pancreatic pseudocyst treatment in chronic pancreatitis can be effectively achieved by both endoscopic and surgical means, with a somewhat higher morbidity and mortality compared with endoscopic intervention.

The natural and unnatural history of pancreatic pseudocysts

Small cysts of the head of the pancreas, impalpable at operation but demonstrable by pancreatography, may be the cause of severe, continuing or recurrent symptoms.

Percutaneous drainage of infected and noninfected pancreatic pseudocysts: experience in 101 cases.

Percutaneous drainage is an effective front-line treatment for most pancreatic pseudocysts; cure is likely if fluid collections are drained adequately and if sufficient time is allowed for closure of fistulas from the pancreatic duct.

The nature and course of cystic pancreatic lesions diagnosed by ultrasound.

This study confirms the usefulness of serial ultrasound scans in determining the nature and necessity for treatment of cystic lesions of the pancreas and influences influencing the likelihood of spontaneous resolution.

Classification of acute pancreatitis—2012: revision of the Atlanta classification and definitions by international consensus

This international, web-based consensus provides clear definitions to classify acute pancreatitis using easily identified clinical and radiologic criteria and should encourage widespread adoption.
