Abstract

Abstract 1. 1. Blunt abdominal trauma is an increasing problem. 2. 2. Biliary tract injury due to blunt trauma is rare but does occur at any point in the biliary tree. 3. 3. There is often long delay in diagnosis and treatment due to the indolent nature of bile peritonitis. 4. 4. Facilities for operative cholangiography should be available in exploration for blunt trauma. 5. 5. The site of injury must be identified and repair improvised to suit each case. 6. 6. Diagnosis and treatment usually result in recovery.
