PACHECO, Sergio et al. Results of laparoscopic treatment of uncomplicated hepatic hydatid cysts. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.4, pp.283-288. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.11.013.

Introduction: Surgery is the most effective treatment for patients with hepatic hydatid cysts (HHC). Currently there is no consensus whether open or laparoscopic surgery is the best treatment. The aim of this study is to describe the surgical technique and the results of laparoscopic radical surgery (pericystectomy). Material and methods: Non-concurrent cohort study. We included patients with uncomplicated HHC in which it was performed a laparoscopic radical pericystectomy between 2007 and 2015 at the Clinical Hospital of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. Demographic and clinical variables, HHC characteristics, morbi-mortality and recurrence at follow-up were recorded. Results: Twenty-four patients were operated. The median age was 35 years (3-79). The median HHC size was 8 centimeters (3-15). Postoperative complications occurred in 4 cases (16%); one patient had a biliary fistula (4.1%). There was no mortality in this study and the hospital stay was 3 days (2-25). Median follow-up was 57.5 months (9-106); a case of hepatic recurrence requiring another surgery was observed. Conclusions: The radical treatment of uncomplicated HHC by laparoscopic surgery is feasible and safe; when compared with existing literature there is no differences in morbi-mortality or recurrence.
