Endoscopic Ethanol Ablation of Communicating Pancreatic Cystic Neoplasms
Subjects will undergo EUS and/or ERCP as outpatients. For cysts shown to communicate with
the main pancreas duct, a balloon catheter will be placed in the main pancreatic duct via
ERCP. The balloon catheter will isolate the cyst from the main pancreatic duct, allowing
ethanol injections of the cyst. A pancreatic duct stent will be placed in some patients,
requiring repeat endoscopy for removal at another time.
