Laparoscopic deroofing of the solitary non parasitic cysts of the liver is a safe and effective procedure. This technique allows a wide access for surgical treatment of cysts localized in segments II, III, IVb, V, and VIII of the liver. On the contrary, the posterior segments, VI and VII, and the segment IVa, are difficult to approach laparoscopically. This report describes a laparoscopic technique used in treating 3 cases of symptomatic solitary cysts of the posterior segments of the liver. The patients were placed in the left lateral position. The fenestration treatment was easy and the mobilization of the right hepatic lobe was not required. At one year follow-up, neither postoperative complications nor recurring episodes were observed.
