Objective To compare and analyze the efficacy and safety of using absolute ethanol and polycinol in the treatment of simple liver and kidney cysts. Methods Eighty-one cases of simple liver and kidney cysts were divided into anhydrous ethanol treatment group (30 cases) and polycinol treatment group (51 cases). The patients were treated with ultrasound-guided sclerosis, and the effects and adverse reactions were compared and observed. Results After 6 months of follow-up, there was no statistically significant difference in efficacy between the two groups (P> 0.05), and the adverse reaction rate was statistically significant in the polycinol group (9.8%) compared with the anhydrous ethanol group (40%) (P <0.01). Conclusion Polycinol is safe and effective in the treatment of simple liver and renal cystic sclerosis, and is an effective alternative to absolute ethanol.
