Abstract

We present herein a hepaticoduodenotomy performed for a retained, impacted distal CBD stone in a low resource setting with a good outcome. This impacted stone had complicated an open cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis by causing the dehiscence of the cystic duct stump as a result of distal biliary obstruction.
