Can cysts in polycystic liver disease be treated with sclerotherapy

Can cysts in polycystic liver disease be treated with sclerotherapy? 

Yes, although solitary hepatic cysts are more often successfully sclerosed than cysts in patients with polycystic liver disease.

In polycystic liver disease, cysts tend not to collapse, presumably because the surrounding liver is less pliable, making cyst wall apposition and subsequent scarring of the cavity less likely. Surgical or laparoscopic unroofing, fenestration, or removal of cysts may be needed when percutaneous treatment fails.
