This chapter describes the surgical procedure for resection of enteric duplication or mesenteric cyst as performed by the following approaches: open and minimally invasive. The text includes an introduction that outlines the indications, risks, alternatives, essential steps, needed equipment, and variations in technique for the procedure in question. This is followed by a template operative dictation, which provides the reader with an operative report, such as is found in a patient chart or electronic medical record. A description is provided of the following critical concepts for this procedure: abdominal exploration, full evaluation of the small and large bowel, identification of the cyst, resection of the cyst with/without bowel resection, re-establishment of intestinal continuity, and abdominal closure.
