Abstract

The authors report two cases of mesenteric cysts that were excised laparoscopically. Resection was accomplished with standard minimally invasive techniques and use of an ultrasonic scalpel. Both patients recovered promptly with minimal morbidity and returned to full activity within a short time. This reveals the suitability of minimally invasive surgery for this particular disease process.
