Balzarotti R et al. – Intraoperative cholangiography was considered as normal. On arrival at the institution 13 days after injury, the patient was operated on for a biliary peritonitis. Intraoperatively, a trans–cystic cholangiography showed a biliary leakage of the common bile duct; a T–tube was placed into the common bile duct; a subhepatic drainage was placed too. On postoperative day 30, a Ttube cholangiography showed a normal biliary tree, without any leakage, and the T–tube was subsequently removed. The patient had a complete recovery.
