Biliary Tract Complications

Biliary Tract Complications
Figure 3. Hemobilia, or the presence of red blood cells within the lumen(arrow) and/or around the circumference of bile ducts is seen under two circumstances: a biliary-vascular fistula and after a vigorous cholangiogram where radiocontrast material is injected under pressure into the biliary tree. Under the latter circumstances, the disorder is usually self-limited.
