Cystgastrostomy

What is a Cystgastrostomy?

During a cystgastrostomy, a connection between the back lining of the stomach and a pancreatic cyst is made. This provides a place for the cyst to drain.

Also Known As:

  • Pancreatic surgery
  • Pancreatic cyst removal
  • Cyst removal
  • Stomach surgery

Conditions Treated with a Cystgastrostomy:

A cystgastrostomy is performed in cases of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts, which cause abdominal pain and bloating.

Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to a Cystgastrostomy:

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

Anesthesia with a Cystgastrostomy:

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

Potential Complications from a Cystgastrostomy:

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