Abstract

Concomitant injury to the bile duct and hepatic artery is an increasingly recognized complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). The impact of a concomitant arterial injury in patients with a bile duct injury (BDI) remains debatable. Early reports described a high incidence of septic complications, difficulty of biliary repair, and increased the risk of recurrent stricture.
