Single-incision laparoscopic excision of a chylous mesenteric cyst: A case report
Mesenteric cysts are rare abdominal tumors which develop as a result of embryonic defects of the lymphatics. Symptoms derived from this pathology are vague and nonspecific, being frequently abdominal pain, heartburn, and nausea. The treatment of these tumors is complete surgical excision. The laparoscopic approach is replacing open abdominal surgical procedures. We present a case of successful laparoscopic resection of a mesenteric cyst using only three trocars.
