Abstract

Laparoscopic surgery may be performed for the treatment of pancreatic pseudocyst when decompression is indicated. Most of reported laparoscopic procedures are performed by inserting trocars via the anterior gastric wall and operating intraluminally with gastric insufflation and endoscopic guidance. We report a patient who was treated successfully with laparoscopic stapled cystogastrostomy and discuss the feasibility and features of such a technique performed with a totally abdominal approach.
