Abstract

The most common cause of Benign Biliary Stricture is post cholecystectomy bile duct injury. Following introduction of the laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure the incidence of bile duct injury and stricture has increased. The studies suggest that the incidence remained stable even after the improved learning curve. The early diagnosis and prompt management is the key in
preventing devastating sequelae of this benign condition. The management of post cholecystectomy biliary strictures involves a multidisciplinary approach. Our review aims to describe the present strategy in management of post cholecystectomy biliary strictures.
