Abstract

Routine drain placement after choledochal cyst (CDC) excision and Roux-en-Y hepatojejunostomy (RYHJ) is commonly practiced to predict and prevent bile/pancreatic leaks and hemorrhage. Recently, laparoscopic excision of CDC has decreased postoeprative morbidity. The necessity of drainage has been questioned. We undertook a prospective randomized trial to assess the need for drainage.
