A RARE CASE OF CYSTIC DUCT- DUODENAL FISTULA - A CASE REPORT

Ankur Sharma, Shireesh Gupta

Abstract


The gallbladder lies on the underside of the liver in the main liver scissura at the junction of the right and left lobes of the liver. The cystic duct is about 3 cm in length but the length is variable.  The lumen is usually 1–3 mm in diameter. [1]

The cystic duct joins the supraduodenal segment of the common hepatic duct in 80% of cases, however the anatomy may vary and the junction may be much lower in the retroduodenal or even retropancreatic part of the bile duct.[1]

In this report, a fistula between cystic duct and duodenum was noted during open cholecystectomy with cbd exploration surgery.
