Abstract

The anatomy of the intrahepatic bile ducts, is consistent with the segmental anatomy of the liver, according to Couinaud classification (1). However there are some variations in this system that can cause significant morbidity and mortality during cholecystectomy. Several classifications have been proposed for biliary opening anomalies. Opening of the whole right main bile ducts to the cystic duct is an extremely rare condition and classified as type-e according to the champetier classification (Table 1) (2).
