Endoscopic ultrasonography in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic pseudocysts

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am. 1995 Oct;5(4):805-16.


This article reviews the current diagnostic and therapeutic modalities used in pseudocyst drainage and possible contributions of endoscopic ultrasound to this process. The authors conclude that EUS should improve the ability to reliably differentiate pseudocysts from cystic neoplasms and are excited about the new development that proposes to combine therapy with diagnosis.
