Abstract

Biliary-bronchial fistula is an extremely unusual complication of thoracoabdominal trauma or suppurative hepatobiliary disease. We treated a patient with a biliary-bronchial fistula that developed after right hepatectomy for an infected traumatic intrahepatic hematoma. The diagnosis of biliary-bronchial fistula was confirmed by percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography. Surgical therapy included a primary transabdominal choledochostomy, with the insertion of a T-tube, sphincteroplasty, and open marsupialization of the chronic subphrenic abscess.
