Summary of "Bile Duct Injury Repairs after Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Five-Year Experience in a Highly Specialized Community Hospital."

Bile duct injury represents a complication after laparoscopic cholecystectomy, impairing quality of life and resulting in subsequent litigations. A five-year experience of bile duct injury repairs in 52 patients at a community hospital was reviewed. Twenty-nine were female, and the median age was 51 years (range, 20-83 years). Strasberg classification identified injuries as Type A (23), B (1), C (1), D (5), E1 (5), E2 (6), E3 (4), E4 (6), and E5 (1). Resolution of the bile duct injury and clinical improvement represent main postoperative outcome measures in our study. The referral time for treatment was within 4 to 14 days of the injury. Type A injury was treated with endobiliary stent placement. The remaining patients required T-tube placement (5), hepaticojejunostomy (20), and primary anastomosis (4). Two patients experienced bile leak after hepaticojejunostomy and were treated and resolved with percutaneous transhepatic drainage. At a median follow-up of 36 months, two patients (Class E4) required percutaneous balloon dilation and endobiliary stent placement for anastomotic stricture. The success of biliary reconstruction after complicated laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be achieved by experienced biliary surgeons with a team approach in a community hospital setting.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A congenital anatomic malformation of a bile duct, including cystic dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct or the large intrahepatic bile duct. Classification is based on the site and type of dilatation. Type I is most common.

The largest bile duct. It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.

The duct that is connected to the GALLBLADDER and allows the emptying of bile into the COMMON BILE DUCT.

Passages external to the liver for the conveyance of bile. These include the COMMON BILE DUCT and the common hepatic duct (HEPATIC DUCT, COMMON).

Predominantly extrahepatic bile duct which is formed by the junction of the right and left hepatic ducts, which are predominantly intrahepatic, and, in turn, joins the cystic duct to form the common bile duct.
