Resumen

FERNANDEZ-DE-CASTRO, Cristina et al. Pancreatic pseudocyst drainage performed with a new prototype forward-viewing linear echoendoscope. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2016, vol.108, n.10, pp.680-683. ISSN 1130-0108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17235/reed.2016.4395/2016.

Interventional endoscopy is a field that continues to grow rapidly. A novel prototype forward-viewing echoendoscope (FV-EUS) has been recently developed in an attempt to overcome some of the limitations of conventional curved linear-array echoendoscopes (OV-EUS). We present a case of a successful endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage of a pancreatic pseudocyst using a forward-viewing echoendoscope. Although the use of this newly developed echoendoscope has not yet become widespread, its unique characteristics can help to easily perform routine therapeutic procedures and contribute to the expansion of interventional endoscopic ultrasound.
