AbstractOBJECTIVE: This study aims to review our center's early experience in managing children with choledochal cysts using laparoscopic excision. METHODS: A retrospective study was carried out from the time of our first case of laparoscopic excision (2010). A total of 41 patients with choledochal cysts underwent laparoscopic choledochal cyst excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy. Patient demographics, operative data, and post-operative outcomes were recorded and analyzed. RESULTS: Forty patients underwent the operation successfully, and the mean time of operation was 210 min (range 140 min to 380 min). One case was converted to an open operation due to dense adhesions. All patients recovered uneventfully and were discharged between seven and ten days post-operatively. Four patients suffered minor bile leaks after their operations, but they required only percutaneous drainage. The mean time for follow-up was six months (range 1 month to 1 year). No significant complication was noted during that time. CONCLUSIONS: We successfully introduced laparoscopic excision of choledochal cyst in our center and have found this to be a safe and effective method. Long-term follow up is awaited.
