Subsequently the patient underwent an image-guided percutaneous cholangiogram and cholecystostomy drain placement by interventional radiology.
A routine cholangiogram was performed in all patients undergoing left hepatectomy as well as any patient with suspected aberrant anatomy.
Balloon extraction was performed although no definite common duct stone was seen; completion cholangiogram did not demonstrate a stone or obstruction.
During followup period, T-tube cholangiogram revealed CBD stricture with two limbs of T-tube across the stricture.
If there is ductal continuity, an endoscopic retrograde cholangiogram and placement of a temporary plastic biliary stent is the treatment of choice for a cystic duct leak.
Imaging modalities to diagnose, detect level, and follow-up of cases of BDI and bile leak (BL) were ultrasonography (USG), computed tomography (CT), endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), and T-tube cholangiogram.
Reasons for conversion to open surgery reported in literature include injury to bowel and major blood vessels, bleeding, avulsion of cystic duct, duodenal injury, cholecystoduodenal fistula, respiratory acidosis, dense adhesions at Calot's triangle, difficult and obscure anatomy, severe inflammation, injury to bile ducts, abnormal intraoperative cholangiogram, unsuspected pathology and equipment failure10.
Subsequent intra-operative cholangiogram confirmed the BA diagnosis.
The biliary drain is left in situ for 4-6 weeks and dilatation is usually repeated on a few occasions until the cholangiogram demonstrates resolution of the stricture with adequate bile drainage, at which point the biliary drain is removed.
Hence, a T-tube was inserted and intraoperative cholangiogram was obtained, which was initially interpreted as normal ductal anatomy with no evidence of leak (Figure 1-A).
Stone size and number and bile duct size were documented on the cholangiogram during ERCP.
