Abstract

We report one case of percutaneous retrograde colangiography of segment III bile duct, through the previously catheterized segment II bile duct, in 15-month-old patient after partial liver transplantation and two separate biliary anastomoses. The retrograde diagnostic cholangiogram confirmed the suspicion of anastomotic stricture and distended the bile ducts, which were easily punctured with percutaneous approach with a 20 Ga Chiba needle.
