Study group discussion: Cystogastrotomy for pseudopancreatic cyst

One interesting question:
In cystogastrotomy, as surgical treatment for pseudo pancreatic cyst...Why do food particles don't enter from stomach to pseudocyst through the communication?
This question asked by surgical professor in OT today.

Because cyst will be always in positive pressure and clinical studies show that the cyst rapidly decompresses. Approximating the mucosa with cyst wall, which has no epithelial lining, leads to rapid shrinkage of stoma. Within few days, neither the stoma nor the cyst is evident on radiology or endoscopy.

Wow. This is great stuff!
