Pancreatic Cysts

Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 1 Year
Official Title: Prospective Registry and Cystic Fluid Banking for Patients Undergoing EUS-FNA for the Evaluation of Pancreatic Cystic Lesions.

Further study details as provided by University of Oklahoma:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To validate the Sendai criteria prospectively in patients with pancreatic cysts. [ Time Frame: up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

Pancreatic cyst fluid

Estimated Enrollment: 3
Study Start Date: June 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The patients will present to our endoscopy unit for EUS-FNA to work up pancreatic cystic lesion(s). At that time, we will recruit them to be in the patient registry and tissue repository. Their enrollment in the patient registry will allow us to contact them annually for survey purposes. Their enrollment in the tissue repository will allow us to store left-over pancreatic cyst fluid that was already aspirated for analysis (as part of the standard-of-care workup for pancreatic cysts).


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

The patients will present to our endoscopy unit for EUS-FNA to work up pancreatic cystic lesion(s).


Inclusion Criteria:

  • consented patients between age 18 to 85 who are referred for EUS evaluation of pancreatic cysts.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient unable to give informed consent
  • age<18 or >85, patients with clinically suspected pseudocysts.
