Abstract

After excision of choledochal cysts (CDC) the distal common bile duct (CBD) stumps are conventionally ligated. Yet, the distal common bile duct stump mobilization and ligation carries certain risk of pancreatic duct injury. The current study investigates the feasibility of selectively leaving distal stump unligated in CDC children with stenotic distal CBD.
