Laparoscopic Fenestration of Hepatic Cysts Called "Simple Cysts of the Liver": Assessment of Evolution and Complications

Hepatic Cysts (HC) known as "simple cysts", are benign, frequent and most often asymptomatic. They are present in about 2.5% to 4.7% of the population. They are divided into congenital and acquired. Congenital cystic lesions include polycystic liver disease, simple cysts, duct related and ciliated hepatic foregut cysts. Acquired cystic lesions are divided into infectious represented by hydatid cyst, the amoebic abscess, and the pyogenic abscess. The non-infectious represent the most frequently reported differential diagnoses which are cystadenoma, cystadenocarcinoma. The aim of this retrospective study is to report and evaluate the results of laparoscopic fenestration of this kind of hepatic cysts.
