Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to a Cystduodenostomy:

Sometimes, pseudocysts resolve on their own without intervention. A laparoscopic cystduodenostomy is a surgical alternative to the procedure.

Anesthesia with a Cystduodenostomy:

A cystduodenostomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from a Cystduodenostomy:

Possible risks following a cystduodenostomy include infection, bleeding, organ damage and a negative reaction to the anesthesia. It is also possible to experience an incisional hernia.
