DE VINATEA, José; VILLANUEVA, Luis; GONZALES, Édgar  and  DIAZ, Víctor. Laparoscopy treatment of choledocal cyst including mucosectomy. An. Fac. med. [online]. 2007, vol.68, n.1, pp.61-66. ISSN 1025-5583.

Choledocal cyst is a rare anomaly of the biliary tract. We present a case of choledochal cyst type I (according to Todani’s classification) that was successfully excised by laparoscopy including hepaticojejunostomy. During the operation we performed distal mucosectomy of the intrapancreatic portion of the cyst. The patient had an uneventful recovery. We conclude that laparoscopic management of the choledochal cyst is feasible.

Keywords : Choledochal cyst; laparoscopy; biliary tract.
