Excision of Branchial CYST

Excision of Branchial CYSTBRANCHIAL CLEFT CYSTS are congenital cysts, that arise in the lateral aspect of the neck when the second branchial cleft fails to close during embryonic development.   At about the fourth week of embryonic life, 4 branchial or pharyngeal clefts develop between 5 ridges known as the branchial or pharyngeal arches. These arches and clefts contribute to the formation of various structures of the head and neck.
