Drainage procedures

Drainage procedures (anastomoses between the pancreas or a pseudocyst and a segment of intestine) are performed to relieve intra-pancreatic and ductal pressure, re-establish an adequate pancreatic juice outflow, and resolve pain. Internal drainage may be necessary to resolve symptoms caused by a large or infected pseudocyst.
