Calot's triangle (or the cystohepatic triangle) is an anatomic space bounded superiorly by the inferior surface of the liver, laterally by the CD, and medially by the common hepatic duct
Right hepatic artery usually crosses posterior to common hepatic duct
Furthermore, it is important to emphasize the risk of dissemination of these parasites due to presence of its snail vectors, experimental studies with case-control should be done to establish better association between liver, hepatic duct
and bile pathological changes and serum biochemical alteration.
Further endoscopic exploration revealed stenosis of common hepatic duct
with passage of contrast above the narrowing, but we failed to pass the guide wire or put in the endobiliary stent (Fig.
33 CBD, common bile duct; CHD, common hepatic duct
In this particular case jaundice was due to involvement of the hepatic confluence with destruction of the right hepatic duct
Drainage of hepatic ducts
was performed in 3 patients at the first stage due to their narrow diameter, in 3 months the BiHepJA according to Roux on THCD was performed.
These drain into the left and right hepatic ducts
, which join to form the common hepatic duct
The cystic artery arising outside the hepatobiliary triangle usually passes ventral to the common hepatic duct
and in some cases it may even be inferior to the cystic duct, thus becoming the first structure encountered in dissection of the inferior border of the hepatobiliary triangle by laparoscopy and has a chance of accidental injury (Hugh et al.
PTC is preferred for high obstructions (hilar cholangiocarcinoma or strictures of the hepatic duct
bifurcation) because of better biliary opacification above the obstruction and a lower risk of introducing sepsis.
These tumors, located in the hepatic duct
bifurcation, are treated by excising the extrahepatic biliary tree, with or without lymph nodes.
The bile is emptied into the right and left hepatic ducts
, which join the common hepatic duct
Norman Roland was performing a laparoscopic procedure on Gina Oakden in HIC Evanston Regional Hospital to remove her gall bladder when the electrosurgical irrigating suction probe that he was using became bent and inadvertently fired, causing a small defect in the patient's common hepatic duct
These then coalesce into one duct called the common hepatic duct
