Aim of study: to evaluate the results of draining and resection interventions in patients with pancreatic cystic lesions.

Materials and methods. A retrospective analysis of the treatment of 50 patients with pancreatic cystic lesions of various etiologies was conducted. All patients included in the study underwent surgical treatment, namely 20 (40.0%) resection interventions (RI) and 30 (60.0%) draining interventions (DI). Comparison of short- and long-term outcomes of treatment between the two groups was carried out.

Results. There were no statistically significant differences in body mass index in the compared groups. The average duration of surgery in DI group was significantly lower than in RI group (142.5±4.9 and 278.5±6.9, p<0.001). The mean intraoperative blood loss, as well as the length of hospitalization, was significantly lower in DI group as compared with RI (390±28.4 ml, 500±27.4 ml, p=0.008; 8.5±0.9 days, 13.8±3.9 days, p<0.001). The severity of postoperative complications was proved to be significantly higher in RI group (p<0.05). However, when analyzing long-term results, the attacks-free course of the disease was observed only in RI group.

Conclusion. If technically possible, DI is more preferable than RI in patients with pancreatic pseudocysts. RI should be performed in patients with cystic neoplasia.
