The management of pancreatic pseudocysts has changed greatly over the last decade. As laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques continue to evolve, their use in the treatment of pseudocysts has gained acceptance, whereas the role of percutaneous drainage has become more limited. The literature on laparoscopic, endoscopic, and percutaneous management of pancreatic pseudocyst is reviewed here and, based on these data, a treatment algorithm is suggested.
