Abstract

Background The recurrence of hydatid cyst in liver and lung, after open and minimum invasive surgery, is most commonly reported. In this study, the patients who underwent open surgery (OS) or minimum invasive surgery (MIS) for hydatid cyst in the liver and lung prospectively followed to assess their comparative recurrence. Methodology This prospective cohort study was conducted between February 2018 and July 2020 at Hayatabad Medical Complex, Peshawar, Pakistan. The patients who underwent open surgery (OS) or minimum invasive surgery (MIS) for hydatid cyst in the liver and lung and having age greater than 18 years was included in the current study. A regular postoperative follow-up plan was implemented. The outcome of variables for the current study was the recurrence of the hydatid cyst. Statistical analysis was carried out using a statistical package for social science (SPSS v26). Result A total of 63 patients were recruited for the current study. The mean age of the patient in the OS group was 43.83 ± 6.21 years, while in the MIS group was 46.75 ± 5.32 years. The liver cyst was high in both groups (p=0.37). There was no significant difference in the recurrence in both groups. (p=0.47). The reoccurrence rate was higher in the MIS group than in the OS group. Most of the cysts recurred within two years. Conclusion This study showed that the frequency of recurrent hydatid cyst was higher in the MIS than in the OS. Most of the hydatid cysts reoccurred within two years in the current study.
