Abstract Hydatid disease of the liver still remains a serious medical problem. As a result of increased travelling and immigration, it has also appeared in previously unaffected countries and is now well manifested in countries where the medical personnel lack the experience to treat this problem. We report an alternative method for the surgical management of hydatid disease of the liver, especially that located over the right superior-posterior aspect of the liver. Through a lateral right thoracotomy, we have a better exposure of the cyst and by using the right hemidiaphragm we achieve the same beneficial effect as omentoplasty does.
