Endoscopic incision of choledochal cysts (choledochocele)

Endoscopic incision of choledochal cysts (choledochocele)

Endoscopy 13(5): 200-202

Congenital cysts of the ble ducts and liver usually present with symptoms of compression, obstruction or infection. The management of these problems has been the surgical approach with extirpation or diversion techniques. Cysts of the common hepatic or bile ducts should be completely excised if possible while intrahepatic cysts are treated by anastomosis of the ducts to isolated intestinal loops. Diversion techniques for distal intraduodenal cysts leads to development of the sump syndrome, and, it has been our experience in two patients to treat these, choledochocele, by incision during performance of a sphincterotomy.
