Laparoscopic fenestration of a symptomatic cyst of the liver

Simple liver cysts are always benign. The only patients who require treatment for one or multiple liver cysts are those who develop symptoms. Simply removing the fluid from the cyst with a needle is not effective because the cyst fills up again within several days. Laparoscopic fenestration has become the standard treatment for benign cysts of the liver, both solitary and multiple. This is a video of a patient presenting with a symptomatic benign liver cyst measuring 18cm in diameter in whom a laparoscopic fenestration is performed.
