Abstract

Since Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was introduced in the 1980s, EUS has evolved from a diagnostic tool to a therapeutic modality for patients with pancreatic neoplasms. Traditionally, treatment policy of pancreatic benign neoplasms (PBN) has been a dichotomous approach to observation or surgery. However, EUS guided treatment provides an alternative option with minimally invasiveness for patients with PBN. This review aimed to provide the role of EUS guided treatment for PBN.
