11 Scopus citations


Necrotizing pancreatitis is a serious medical problem that often requires intervention to debride necrotic pancreatic and peripancreatic tissue. Recently, minimally invasive approaches have been applied to pancreatic necrosectomy. The purpose of this report is to review the history of transgastric pancreatic debridement, identify appropriate patient selection criteria, and highlight technical “pearls.” We present this subject matter in the context of our own clinical experience, with a primary focus on a “How I Do It” type of technical description.
