Bile Duct Surgery

Livers synthesizes and secretes bile that plays an important role in digestive processes. The bile is stored in the gallbladder. The duct that carries bile to and from the gallbladder is termed as the cystic duct. The duct that carries the bile from the liver is known as the hepatic duct. At a point, the hepatic duct and cystic duct unite to form common bile duct which drains bile in the liver.

Biliary stricture: When the common bile duct gets narrowed, a condition known as a biliary stricture, bile duct surgery is required.

Bile duct stone: Bile duct stone may either formed in the bile duct or travel from the gallbladder. In some cases of bile stones, surgery is required.
