Abstract

Percutaneous drainage of 4 pancreatic abscesses and 5 pancreatic pseudocysts was performed under the guidance of ultrasonography or fluoroscopy. Clinical inprovement following the percutaneous drainage enabled surgical procedure in 2 of 4 pationts with pancreatic abscesses and obviated surgery in the other 2. In patients with pancreatic pseudocysts, recurrence have nat been observed for the last 3 years. Percutaneous drainage is a safe and effective procedure and could be the method of choice in the management of pancreatic pseudocyst that is symptomatic and enlarging. Percutaneous drainage could play a significant role in the management of the patients with pancreatic abscess.
