The treatment of acute and chronic pancreatic pseudocyst has been hotly debated. Small, aymptomatic pseudocysts, particulary less than 5 cm in diameter seldom complicate and can be watched medically. Symptomatic pseudocysts and those cysts that develop complications (bleeding, abscess formation, intestinal or biliary obstruction), as well as pseudocysts which are increasing in size, usually require drainage. Such drainage may be internal(cystogastrostomy, cystoenterostomy) or external or rarely may be effected by excision of a suitably situated lesion. External surgical drainge has a significant recurrence rate and a high incidence of pancreaticocutaneous fistula. Endoscopic cystogastrostomy or cystoenterostomy is a valuable method of internal drainage if technical expertise is available. However, these endoscopic methods, currently used, are technically very complex and time-consuming procedure. So we designed a new device for endoscopic treatment of pancreatic pseudocyst. In this report, we describe a new endoscopic cystogastrostomy which permits easier, and probably safer, management of pancreatic pseduocyst in three patients.
