Abstract

The growing incidence of cystic pancreatic tumours has become a major problem in daily clinical practice. These patients usually undergo follow-up programmes of questionable clinical efficacy that put significant strain on endoscopy units. Safe and effective alternatives to surgery are desperately needed in these cases. The aim of this study was to critically review the utility of ablative therapies in cystic pancreatic tumours.

Keywords:

Resumen

La incidencia creciente de los tumores quísticos de páncreas representa un problema en la práctica clínica diaria. Estos pacientes se ven sometidos a programas de seguimiento de dudosa eficacia clínica, que sobrecargan la actividad asistencial en las unidades de endoscopia. Sería de gran utilidad disponer de tratamientos alternativos a la cirugía para este tipo de pacientes, y que estos fueran seguros y eficaces. En esta revisión se intenta realizar una puesta al día crítica sobre la utilidad de los tratamientos ablativos de los tumores quísticos del páncreas.
