Abstract

Abstract Injuries to the biliary tract due to nonpenetrating abdominal trauma and the surgical therapy of these lesions are discussed. The majority of injuries to the gallbladder due to blunt trauma are associated with automobile accidents. An unusual case of rupture of the gallbladder followed by a slough of a portion of the left lobe of the liver is presented. If the patient's condition permits, cholecystectomy is the preferred form of surgical treatment in cases of traumatic rupture of the gallbladder.
