Question:

Prior to sclerotherapy of a simple hepatic cyst, it is necessary to rule out connection with which structure (multiple choices)?
1. Retroperitoneum.
2. Inferior vena cava.
3. Peritoneal cavity.
4. Aorta.
5. Biliary tree.





Answer:

The correct answers for the question "Prior to sclerotherapy of a simple hepatic cyst, it is necessary to rule out connection with which structure (multiple choices)?" are:

1. Retroperitoneum.

3. Peritoneal cavity.

5. Biliary tree.



Explanation
1 - Retroperitoneum [the "pseudocyst" cavity was injected with hydrosoluble contrast during the initial procedure to exclude any communication with the retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, or biliary tree].

2 - Inferior vena cava [the "pseudocyst" cavity was injected with hydrosoluble contrast during the initial procedure to exclude any communication with the retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, or biliary tree].

3 - Peritoneal cavity [the "pseudocyst" cavity was injected with hydrosoluble contrast during the initial procedure to exclude any communication with the retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, or biliary tree].

4 - Aorta [the "pseudocyst" cavity was injected with hydrosoluble contrast during the initial procedure to exclude any communication with the retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, or biliary tree].

5 - Biliary tree [the "pseudocyst" cavity was injected with hydrosoluble contrast during the initial procedure to exclude any communication with the retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, or biliary tree].

Alcohol sclerosis of a giant liver cyst following failed deroofings

Abstract
Percutaneous alcohol sclerotherapy for simple liver cysts is an established and safe procedure. We report alcohol ablation of a very large (5.5 liters) liver cyst that had failed laparoscopic deroofing procedures twice. The cyst responded to multisession alcohol sclerotherapy.
