Cholecystectomy

Before attempting a cholecystectomy operation, the surgeon must be aware of the many variations in the arterial supply to the gallbladder and the relationship of the vessels to the bile ducts.

Unfortunately, there have been several reported cases in which the common hepatic duct or the main bile duct has been included in the arterial ligature with disastrous consequences.
