Figure 1 :(a) Large colloid cyst which was excised near totally (Figure 1b); (c) The access track, as seen on cornal MR imaging; (d) The 2-port technique. Here a second port (A) is introduced beside the main port (B) following the complete aspiration of the cyst contents. The biopsy forceps through B grasps the cyst and scissors through A are used to cut the base of the cyst. It is important to coagulate before cutting it to avoid bleeding. To allow access of both the ports, a small flap of size 2 cm is made, which is later placed back using mini plate and screws (Dr PSC)
