EUS-guided Pancreatic Pseudocyst Drainage using the AXIOS™ Stent and Electrocautery Enhanced Delivery System: First Report from Latin America, by Dr. Robles-Medranda, Instituto Ecuatoriano de Enfermedades Digestivas, Guyaquil, Ecuadoe

A 36-year-old man presented to a referring institution with acute upper abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. He was diagnosed with acute necrotizing pancreatitis and received clinical management in an Intensive Care Unit. Clinical improvement was noted, but four weeks later the patient started to experience nausea and early saciety. A new abdominal CT scan was performed and showed an 9.6 x 13.5cm hypodense cystic collection in the body of pancreas, which compressed the stomach wall. A pancreatic pseudocyst was suspected and patient was refered to our center. Performing EUS-guided drainage using the AXIOS Stent and Electrocautery Enhanced Delivery System was proposed.
