Abstract

Pancreatic cystic lesions are being detected with an increasing frequency. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) provides both diagnostic and therapeutic means for pancreatic cystic lesions. Detailed imaging and EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration provide additional information on pancreatic cystic lesions. EUS-guided pseudocyst drainage has advantages over conventional drainage modalities. EUS-guided cyst ablation is a promising therapeutic modality.
