Endoscopic management of PFCs is technically challenging. Therapeutic endoscopists are tackling increasingly complex cases, providing minimally invasive treatment for patients who previously required surgery. New techniques and devices intended to facilitate endoscopic drainage have been developed. More research is needed to demonstrate comparative outcomes, collect long-term efficacy data, and develop additional, simpler equipment for PFC drainage.
