Sterilisation of the liver hydatid cyst cavities is a significant step in the surgical treatment of these cysts. We previously performed a study addressing the Foley catheter method in sterilisation of the cyst cavities with open surgery. Recently, we have been laparoscopically using Foley catheters for sterilisation of the cyst cavities. We tried laparoscopically in five cases with six cysts. A Foley catheter can be used in the sterilisation of hydatid cysts cavity both in laparoscopic and open interventions. We think that this procedure can reach cysts at all locations of liver and be applied to multiple liver cysts, too. From laparoscopic point of view, the method we presented is innovative procedure. To date, we have not seen any morbidity including recurrence and mortality in cases we applied this procedure.
