Abstract

A tension mucocele was created in three hepatic homografts by ligating a low-lying cystic duct during transplant cholecystectomy and by incorporating its outflow end into the anastomosis of the common hepatic duct to the recipient common duct or Roux limb of jejunum. The consequent complication of obstruction of the biliary tract that necessitated reoperation and excision of the mucocele in all three patients can be avoided by the simple expedient of completely removing the cystic duct when feasible or providing egress to the secretion of the cystic duct as described.
