Bile duct of Luschka leading to bile leak after cholecystectomy--revisiting the biliary anatomy.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bile ducts of Luschka (also called supravesicular ducts) are small bile ducts in the gallbladder bed. Although they do not drain any liver parenchyma, they can be a source of bile leak or biliary peritonitis after cholecystectomy in both adults and children, as shown in this case report. As a reminder, variations of biliary anatomy in the gallbladder bed and cholecysto-hepatic triangle of Calot, are reviewed.
