Magnetic resonance imaging-guided three-dimensional real-time bile duct reconstruction and end-to-end anastomosis under laparoscopy: A case report.

J Minim Access Surg 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery, Taipei Medical University Ningbo Medical Centre, Ningbo, China.

In laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), the anatomical variation of gallbladder canal should be noted. Bile duct injury is one of the most serious complications of LC, which might lead to serious complications. This case because of an intraoperative accidental cut to right anterior inferior lobe bile duct which joins to the cystic duct, after confirming by intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging-guided real-time three-dimensional bile duct reconstruction and performing end-to-end anastomosis of the right anterior inferior lobe bile duct and the gallbladder tube under laparoscopy, the patient was discharged 5 days after surgery, was followed up for 4 months and was disease-free.
