Abstract

In rare cases, biliary drainage is prevented by colonic position. When these situations arise within a critically ill patient who is not a good surgical candidate, unique solutions must be found. In this case, the solution was to use laparoscopic assistance to displace the colon while the interventional radiology team successfully accessed the biliary system.
