A case of type IVa choledochal cyst

Abstract

The extent of excision and necessity of hepatectomy in type IVa choledochal cyst has not been clarified. We performed left lobectomy of the liver for complete excision of the cyst in a thirty-year-old male patient with type IVa choledochal cyst. Postoperative recovery was untroubled and outcome was satisfactory. Complete excision of the cyst including hepatectomy is an acceptable operative management for patients with type IVa choledochal cyst. This procedure can eliminate the possibility of subsequent cancer arising from remaining cyst.
