Ultrasound-guided endoscopic transgastric drainage of a post-traumatic pancreatic pseudocyst in a child

Afr J Paediatr Surg. Sep-Dec 2010;7(3):194-6. doi: 10.4103/0189-6725.70426.

Abstract

Despite of a number of techniques in the armentarium of the paediatric surgeon, the management of pancreatic pseudocysts remains a challenge. We report on a case of a 5-year-old child with a post-traumatic pancreatic pseudocyst who was successfully treated with endoscopic ultrasound-guided transgastric approach. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided transgastric drainage of a pancreatic pseudocyst is effective and safe in children.
