Inflammatory pancreatic fluid collections
The following summarized guidelines for the evaluation and management of inflammatory pancreatic fluid collections are prepared by our editorial team based on guidelines from the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE 2016).
Fine needle aspiration: consider avoiding performing routine FNA of pancreatic fluid collections for the diagnosis of infected necrosis.
Endoscopic drainage: perform endoscopic drainage of pancreatic fluid collections only after sufficient exclusion of alternative diagnoses, such as cystic pancreatic neoplasms and pseudoaneurysms.
