Further study details as provided by University of Florida:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Technical Success of Endoscopic Ultrasound-guided Single-access Pseudocyst Drainage With a Fully Covered Self-expanding Metal Stent ; Anchored With a Double Pigtail Plastic Stent Inserted Through the Metal Stent Lumen [ Time Frame: baseline ]

    Technical success was evaluated by the ability to achieved pseudocyst drainage after endoscopically placing a Fully Covered Self-expanding Metal Stent in the pseudocyst .

    Technical failure was evaluated by the inability to fully drain the pancreas pseudocyst after endoscopically placing a Fully Covered Self-expanding Mental Stent in the pseudocyst.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Resolution of Pancreatic Pseudocyst After Placement of Fully Covered Self-expanding Metal Stent (CSEMS). [ Time Frame: 6 to 12 weeks after baseline ]
  • Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Enrollment: 22
Study Start Date: August 2009
Study Completion Date: May 2015
Primary Completion Date: May 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
