Surgery is still the main modality in the treatment of hepatic hydatid disease. Laparoscopic methods, with their low morbidity, have gained prominence in many fields and, in some cases, have nearly replaced open surgery. In this report, a laparoscopic method for the treatment of hepatic hydatid disease is described and the results in the first six cases are presented. The method involves the use of an aspirator-grinder apparatus designed specifically for laparoscopic surgery. The postoperative courses of the patients were very comfortable and no complication related to the laparoscopic technique occurred. The method achieves evacuation of all viable cyst contents with the patient benefits of laparoscopic surgery. The apparatus practically eliminates the risk of spillage. The postoperative parameters and the early follow-up results (21-27 months) are very encouraging.
