PMID:  8043926     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The treatment of symptomatic congenital hepatic cysts is surgical. Aspiration does not provide definitive therapy and carries a high recurrence rate. Surgical exploration and drainage intraperitoneally, externally, and internally to a segment of bowel have been described. With the recent explosion in the applications of laparoscopic guided surgery, we report a simple method for the excision of congenital solid hepatic cyst with subsequent intraperitoneal drainage and follow-up.
