Medical Program for Drainage of Pancreatic Pseudocysts
Pancreatic pseudocysts are collections of fluid around the pancreas. They arise due to sudden or prolonged inflammation of the pancreas. Although some disappear when the inflammation of the pancreas decreases, others remain in the pancreas and cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, indigestion, vomiting and weight loss. Treatments for pancreatic pseudocysts include conservative treatment (careful monitoring), surgical drainage, which can be performed by a standard cut or by minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic surgical drainage, or endoscopic drainage. In the endoscopic drain, a tube is inserted with the help of an endoscope, which connects the pseudocyst to the stomach or upper part of the small intestine. The insertion can be further helped by the use of endoscopic ultrasound. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage can be further facilitated by passing a tube through the nose and inserting it into the cyst during drainage.
