abstract

  • Three patients with postcholecystectomy unilateral hepatic duct stricture and subsequent liver atrophy were treated conservatively, with a successful outcome of up to three years follow up. A better understanding of the pathophysiological sequelae of segmental hepatic duct obstruction suggests that in such circumstances reconstructive surgery, with its attendant risks, may not invariably be necessary.
