The management of choledochal cysts has evolved during the last 3 decades. Laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized the treatment of choledochal cyst (CC). We report our case, 2-year old female, in which total excision of cyst and Roux-en-Y hepaticoenterostomy is done by laparoscopic approach. In the hands of experts, laparoscopic excision of the CC is safe and effective approach. This is our first experience and our outcome has been good to a follow-up of 6 months. In our opinion, laparoscopic surgery is a safe treatment of choledochal cyst with less postoperative morbidity, a shorter length of stay and a lower blood loss when compared with open approach. Laparoscopic surgery may become the first choice procedure for choledochal cyst.

Abstract

The management of choledochal cysts has evolved during the last 3 decades. Laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized the treatment of choledochal cyst (CC). We report our case, 2-year old female, in which total excision of cyst and Roux-en-Y hepaticoenterostomy is done by laparoscopic approach. In the hands of experts, laparoscopic excision of the CC is safe and effective approach. This is our first experience and our outcome has been good to a follow-up of 6 months. In our opinion, laparoscopic surgery is a safe treatment of choledochal cyst with less postoperative morbidity, a shorter length of stay and a lower blood loss when compared with open approach. Laparoscopic surgery may become the first choice procedure for choledochal cyst.
