Background: The aim of this study was to compare the mid-term outcomes of open and laparoscopic partial cystectomy (LPC). Methods: The medical records of patients who underwent conventional partial cystectomy (CPC) and LPC for liver hydatid cyst from May 2010 to February 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. Operative time, blood loss, length of hospital stay, post-operative morbidity, mortality and mid-term follow-up outcomes were evaluated. Results: Amongst 130 patients, 38 patients were underwent LPC and 92 underwent CPC. Blood loss and post-operative complications were similar in both groups. The mean operative time in the LPC and the CPC groups was, respectively, 95.4 ± 13.1 and 63.5 ± 15.6 min, which showed a significant difference between the both groups. The mean length of hospital stay in CPC group was significantly longer when compared the LPC group. The mean diameter of cyst in LPC group was 6.1 ± 1.1 cm and 7.8 ± 2.1 cm in CPC group with a significant difference. The overall complication rates were 13.1% in LPC group and 17.3% in CPC group without significant difference. The most common complication was biliary leakage and surgical site infection. Conclusion: LPC for the surgical treatment of liver hydatid cyst appears to be safe and effective method with low morbidity rates in selected patients.
