We conducted a prospective analysis of our patients undergoing laparoscopic cystogastrostomy to analyse the merits and demerits of the procedure.
Laparoscopic cystogastrostomy is a safe and feasible method and provides efficient drainage of PP.
Moreover, as result of the thin cyst wall, internal drainage such as cystogastrostomy
or Roux-Y cystojejunumstomy was inappropriate which might give rise to a large number of complications such as anastomotic fistula, infection and cyst recurrence.
Two of the patients in this series were originally misdiagnosed elsewhere as having pseudocysts and underwent cystogastrostomy
This can either be done endoscopically using a flexible endoscope to establish a fistula between cyst and stomach or with laparotomy, gastroscope and cystogastrostomy
The endoscopic alternative to the transpapillary approach is transmural drainage, via cystogastrostomy
Five patients had pancreatic pseudocyst, successful cystogastrostomy
was done in four along with pancreatic sphincterotomy in three.

The end result is similar to surgical cystogastrostomy though with minimal trauma and morbidity.
