Abstract

We report a case of delayed biliary leak following left hepatectomy with bile duct excision causing repeated infection. The focal dilatation of bile duct system responsible for biliary leak through the liver surface from residual segment 4 was targeted selectively by CT guidance and ablated with alcohol causing complete resolution of the bile leak and the subsequent infection.
