Objective: To investigate the clinical results of laparoscopic hepatic cyst windowing guided by three-dimensional reconstruction with the Mimics software system. Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on patients who underwent hepatic cyst enucleation at the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery of Hebei Provincial People's Hospital from January 2022 to December 2023. The patients who had their 3D reconstruction model made by Mimics (Materializes interactive medical image control system) software before surgery were included in the observation group, and those who did not have 3D reconstruction were included in the control group. The relevant clinical indicators were compared between the two groups. Results: A total of 58 patients were included, including 23 males and 35 females, aged 33 to 91 years. There were 33 patients in the observation group, and 25 patients in the control group. The operation time [60.00 (50.0-72.5) min vs. 65.00 (60.0-85.0) min, P=0.025], intraoperative blood loss [3.00 (2.0-5.0) mL vs. 5.00 (4.0-6.0) mL, P=0.028], and difference between preoperative measurements of cyst volume and intraoperative drainage volume [200.000 (101.0-310.5) mL vs. 342.000 (-268.5- 636.5) mL, P=0.039] in the observation group were better than those in the control group. There was no statistically significant difference in the duration of abdominal drain retention, drainage tube drainage volume, postoperative hospitalization time, postoperative complications, postoperative recurrence rate, preoperative measurement of cyst volume or intraoperative drainage volume (P>0.05). Conclusion: For patients who need to undergo open drainage of liver cysts, the preoperative use of Mimics software to create 3D can help to accurately identify the internal structure of liver cysts, shorten the operation time, reduce intraoperative bleeding, and accurately measure the volume of liver cysts, which can maximize the effect of one-stop removal of the cysts, and is worthy of clinical promotion.
