Abstract

Direct percutaneous drainage of pancreatic pseudocysts in communication with the duct of Wirsung can lead to pancreaticocutaneous fistula. These patients are safely treated with the percutaneous transgastric approach. In a gastrectomized patient who developed a pseudocyst, we percutaneously placed in internal endoprosthesis from the duct of Wirsung to the afferent loop and gastric pouch.
