The advent of computed tomographic scan with its wide use in the evaluation of acute pancreatitis has opened up a new topic in pancreatology i.e. fluid collections. Fluid collections in and around the pancreas occur often in acute pancreatitis and were defined by the Atlanta Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis in 1992. Two decades since the Atlanta Conference additional experience has brought to light the inadequacy and poor understanding of the terms used by different specialists involved in the care of patients with acute pancreatitis when interpreting imaging modalities and the need for a uniformly used classification system...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Therapeutic interventions for complicated pancreatitis, especially in pseudocysts and walled-off necroses as a sequel of necrotizing pancreatitis, have a long history. Originally a stronghold of classical surgery and radiology, in the last two decades this was increasingly supplemented by endoscopy, often with adjuvant percutaneous drainage, mostly reducing open surgery to a salvage intervention in case of failure and complication. This study aims to evaluate and compare the current therapeutic options for pancreatic fluid collections, especially pseudocysts...

Pancreatic fluid collections include a wide range of entities such as cystic neoplasms, both benign and malignant; vascular pathology such as pseudoaneurysms and hematomas; and a host of other entities such as pseudocysts, seromas, abscesses, and bilomas. The distinction between these entities requires correlating an often complex and overlapping clinical presentation with findings on imaging studies, typically computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound. As complex as the diagnostic work-up may be, the treatment of pancreatic collections poses its own set of challenges and often requires a multidisciplinary collaboration among interventional radiologists, surgeons, and gastroenterologists...

Pancreatic pseudocysts are complications of acute or chronic pancreatitis. Initial diagnosis is accomplished most often by cross-sectional imaging. Endoscopic ultrasound with fine needle aspiration has become the preferred test to help distinguish pseudocyst from other cystic lesions of the pancreas. Most pseudocysts resolve spontaneously with supportive care. The size of the pseudocyst and the length of time the cyst has been present are poor predictors for the potential of pseudocyst resolution or complications, but in general, larger cysts are more likely to be symptomatic or cause complications...
