abstract

  • Hemobilia results in obstructive jaundice because blood clots may obstruct the bile duct. Decompression relieves jaundice, promotes clot lysis, and may encourage cessation of bleeding. We report a case of hemobilia that followed needle biopsy of the liver and was managed nonoperatively with an endoscopically placed nasobiliary catheter.
