Laparoscopic deroofing of hepatic cyst

Journal Title: Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal - Year 2000, Vol 2, Issue 2

Abstract

Solitary non-parasitic cysts of the liver are commonly asymptomatic and do not require treatment. Rarely, the cysts become symptomatic and are then best treated surgically. The optimal surgical treatment is debatable. We report a case treated by laparoscopic deroofing which is arguably a safe and effective approach.
