Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical value of laparoscopic cystogastrostomy in the treatment of pancreatic pseudocyst. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with pancreatic pseudocyst received total laparoscopic cystogastrostomy. The data on intra-operative bleeding, operative time, post-operative time to get out of bed, time of first flatus/bowel motion, complication and duration of hospital stay were observed and analyzed retrospective1y. RESULTS: Twenty-one patients were successfully carried out the laparoscopic surgery. The average operation time was 90(62-120) min. The blood loss was less than 100 mL in all patients. The average time of hospital stay was 8 d. After 12-18 month follow-up, all patients recovered smoothly without any complication. CONCLUSION: Total laparoscopic cystogastrostomy with the posterior approach is a feasible, safe and minimal invasive procedure for pancreatic pseudocyst, which can be recommended to the clinical application.
