“Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)-Guided Ablation of Pancreatic Cysts”
The purpose of this study is to track outcomes and complications of patients at IUMC referred by physicians for EUS-guided pancreatic cyst ablation. This information is essential in order to disseminate future published information to physicians about this technique. A database will be created to track these patients undergoing an already scheduled/planned procedure. Phone calls at selected intervals will be made following the procedure to track any complications that occur
