  • Number of Patients: 61
  • Published —
This review of available literature considered patients with walled-off pancreatic necrosis (isolated collection of pus in the pancreas and dead tissue secondary to infection and inflammation of the pancreas; WON) in order to evaluate the effectiveness of dual-modality drainage (minimally invasive drainage technique; DMD) combined with a short duration of antibiotics (SD) versus dual-modality drainage combined a long duration of antibiotics (LD).
