Abstract

A laceration-avulsion injury of the hepatic duct from blunt trauma is described. Operative findings rather than preoperative studies led to the correct diagnosis. A combination of suture repair, left hepatic duct ligation, and hepaticojejunostomy were used to primarily manage this complex injury. Postoperative hepatobiliary scintigraphy and clinical follow-up over 1 year demonstrate satisfactory biliary drainage. Principles of the management of hepatic duct injury are reviewed.
