Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy with Resulting Bile Duct Injury
This stock medical exhibit portrays a laparoscopic cholecystectomy with a resulting bile duct injury. The first image is an inset showing the pre-operative condition of the gallbladder, with a gallstone impacted within the cystic duct. The next image is an anterior view of a female abdomen and torso showing the placement of the laparoscopic instruments during this surgery. The final two images compare the correct post-operative condition with the actual post-operative condition in this case, in which the bile duct is cut and bile is leaking into the abdominal cavity.
