abstract

  • The experience with primary hepatic hydatid disease and its surgical complications at a specialist hepatobiliary surgical unit over five years is reviewed. The pre-operative assessment and investigation, surgical management and follow-up of these patients are described and discussed. The occasional difficulty in pre-operative diagnosis and the dangers of percutaneous techniques are emphasised. Operative cholangiography and a flexible surgical approach are strongly recommended.
