Surgical Endoscopy
S JournéJ Closset

Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) seems to be associated with an increased risk of biliary or vascular injuries. Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms (HAP) are rare complications of LC. HAP can occur in the early or late postoperative period. Patients with HAP present with abdominal pain, hemobilia, and liver function test (LFT) alterations. We report the case of a patient who was affected with a cystic duct stump leak associated with a right HAP and was treated by endoscopic biliary drainage and angiographic coil embolization.
