marsupialisation

marsupialisation

A procedure in which a cyst (e.g., a Bartholin cyst abscess) or a cyst-like space needs to be opened (i.e., like a marsupial pouch), incised and drained, which is followed by suturing the incised wall to remain in an opened position so that healing may occur by granulation tissue formation from the base of the pouch.
