Abstract

Background: Coelomic cysts are uncommon benign cyctic lesions of the mediastinum. Complete resection of the cyst with surgical treatment is indicated depending on whether the patient is symptomatic or whether the cyst grows during follow-up, or whether the diagnosis is uncertain. Surgical treatment prevents complications, relieves symptoms, and establishes diagnosis. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is the best method for excision of these cysts. This approach is safe and effective, has low morbidity, and shortens the length of hospital stay
