Abstract

Bile duct injury (BDI) as a complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy may result in biliary cirrhosis with a high morbidity-mortality rate. Recurrent invasive procedures may be required for the optimum management. The most frequent causative factor in BDI is anatomical misidentification, particularly by inexperienced surgeons. Direct coloration of the cystic duct, bile duct, and gallbladder may decrease biliary tract injury.
