Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pancreatic cysts are being identified with increasing frequency due to a combination of increased awareness and more frequent use of cross sectional imaging. Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas range from completely benign to frankly malignant. Identifying pre-malignant cysts offers the opportunity to prevent the development of pancreatic cancer. This article reviews the presentation, workup, and non-operative and operative management of premalignant and malignant pancreatic cysts.
