Anatomic variation in intrahepatic bile ducts
: an analysis of intraoperative cholangiograms in 300 consecutive donors for living donor liver transplantation.
Intraperitoneal inoculation of mice with rhesus rotavirus within the first 48 h of postnatal life leads to injury of the biliary epithelium and subsequent extrahepatic biliary obstruction and intrahepatic bile duct
One month later, an ERCP showed multiple strictures of the small intrahepatic bile ducts
in several liver segments, dilation of the CBD (12 mm), and a stenosis of the bifurcation (Figure 1(b)).

Caption: Figure 3: Cervical-thoracic-abdominal-pelvic computed tomography revealed parietal contrast enhancement without intraluminal well-defined mass at the distal common bile duct level with upstream dilatation of the extrahepatic and intrahepatic bile ducts
Imaging demonstrated a noncirrhotic liver, conventional hepatic arterial anatomy, trifurcation of intrahepatic bile ducts
, fat quantification of 4.2% to 4.7%, and an adequate liver volume (Figure 1).
Obstructive jaundice (OJ) is caused by a mechanical obstruction of the extrahepatic or intrahepatic bile ducts
due to stones, tumor, inflammation, or other causes .
Multiple intrahepatic bile ducts
at the resection margin, when present, were sutured together to create either one or two anastomotic orifices.
Symptomatic portal biliopathy could be managed by endotherapy (Stone extraction, stricture dilatation, stenting] or surgery (Shunt surgery] portal biliopathy refers to abnormalities of the extrahepatic and intrahepatic bile ducts
with or without anomalies of gallbladder wall in patients who have portal hypertension.
Abdominal computed tomography scan showed three small cysts (<1 cm) and a dilated common bile duct, but liver parenchyma and intrahepatic bile ducts
were normal (Figure 1).
