Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is associated with a 0.5% incidence of major common bile duct injury. Management of this uncommon complication is determined by when the injury is recognized, by its extent, and by local surgical, radiological and endoscopiC expertise. The use of titanium Wallstents for benign biliary stricture has been previously described, but complications from this approach are not well documented. The management of complications from titanium Wallstent deployment for treatment of a common bile duct stricture is described.
