This is however an advance laparoscopic surgery requiring experience and upmost skills for safe outcome. Nowadays it is gaining popularity as it is now standardized and surgeons are gaining more and more experience. Aim: To evaluate the benefits of laparoscopic procedures for pancreatic psudocyst over open surgery based on these parameters: a. Selection of patient b. Time and technique of surgery c. Postoperative pain and use of analgesics d. Recovery and hospital stay e. Complications f. Quality of life g. Cost effectiveness
