Abstract

Background: Intrabiliary rupture is the most common complication of hepatic hydatid disease (HHD), and persistent biliary leakage is the most frequent complication after surgery for HHD, In this study, we evaluated the outcome of endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) performed in the management of postoperative biliary fistula in 33 patients with HHD and investigated the effects of the daily output of the fistula and the timing of the ES on the duration of the fistula.
