INTRODUCTION

Bile duct injuries have various etiologies2,6. For their repair, there are several surgical techniques adjusted to the clinical situation of each patient9,10. In some common bile duct injuries round ligament repair has been suggested as an alternative to a possible biliodigestive derivation. However, the evidence with respect to its generalized use is limited1,3,8.

We present the case of a patient operated for acute cholecystitis with a bile duct injury associated with necrosis of the common bile duct that was repaired with a round ligament patch.
