Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term results of a modified catheterization technique for percutaneous treatment of hepatic cystic echinococcosis (CE) types 2 and 3b and to retrospectively compare the results of puncture, aspiration, injection, and reaspiration (PAIR); standard catheterization; and the modified catheterization technique.
