NHS Negligence - Gall Bladder Medical Negligence

Cholecystectomy (removal of the gall bladder) is usually performed laparoscopically but may be by open surgery. Damage to the bile duct may occur and is often due to surgical error – failure to identify the structures. It is crucial that the structures have been correctly identified as there are anatomical variants. Damage to the bile duct results in biliary leak; this may be apparent at the time of operation or in the post-operative period. Negligence claims may concern the occurrence to the bile duct damage itself, failure to recognise such damage, and delay in diagnosis of the biliary leak in the post-operative period.
