Choledochal cyst disease

A review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors present a review of the classification, etiology, presentation, treatment and long-term outcome of children and adults with choledochal cyst disease. Unlike children, adults often present with acute biliary tract symptoms or pancreatitis. The treatment of choice remains extrahepatic cyst excision and biliary bypass. This treatment has excellent long-term results that minimize the development of malignancy.
