Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a commonly performed surgical procedure. The postoperative course is often uncomplicated; however, complications like infection, biliary leakage, and bleeding and bile duct injury can occur. Here we report on a patient with common bile duct obstruction and haemobilia due to a false aneurysm of the right hepatic artery after laparoscopic cholecystectomy, masked by biliary pancreatitis, complicated by an infarction of the liver after embolisation. The aetiology of upper gastrointestinal bleeding greatly varies. This case is an uncommon case of gastrointestinal bleeding due to a false aneurysm of the right hepatic artery, which was successfully treated.
