Prospective Registry and Cystic Fluid Banking for Patients Undergoing EUS-FNA for the Evaluation of Pancreatic Cystic Lesions.
The patients will present to our endoscopy unit for EUS-FNA to work up pancreatic cystic
lesion(s). At that time, we will recruit them to be in the patient registry and tissue
repository. Their enrollment in the patient registry will allow us to contact them annually
for survey purposes. Their enrollment in the tissue repository will allow us to store
left-over pancreatic cyst fluid that was already aspirated for analysis (as part of the
standard-of-care workup for pancreatic cysts).
