Bile Duct Injury - Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

For many years, an open cholecystectomy surgical proceedure had been standard for the treatment of gallstones. With the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the need for open surgery was eliminated. The results of this proceedure varies greatly with the skill and experience of the surgeon.

A serious injury frequently occurs when the surgeon cuts the patient's bile duct, and/or removes a portion of it. If the wrong area is cut, permanent injury or death can result.
