We describe a modified ultrasound-guided transgastric drainage technique for pancreatic pseudocysts. Using a water-filled stomach to improve visualization, we have successfully drained pseudocysts in ten patients. This report also describes the use of a stiffening cannula to assist transgastric catheter placement. We emphasize the value of constant real-time tracking of the dilator and guidewire to ensure correct positioning of the drainage catheter.
