With the emergence of minimally invasive techniques, percutaneous drainage has been applied to the management of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts in lieu of conventional surgical or endoscopic therapy. Percutaneous insertion of internalized drainage catheters represents an attractive method for pseudocyst drainage, but has been limited by the usual need for cross-sectional imaging or endoscopic guidance. Herein, we describe the use of a simple fluoroscopically guided technique for percutaneous transgastric cystgastrostomy with internalized drainage catheter placement in two cases. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
