Abstract: Biliary like age is the most common morbidity after cholecystectomy. Cholecystectomy is the most commonly surgical Procedure in India because cholelithiasis is a very common problem in India and hence an effective management for this is very essential. Open cholecystectomy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy are two modalities of treatment offered to patients suffering from symptomatic gall stones. Major bile duct injury following cholecystectomy can be devastating to the patient and needs prompt diagnosis and timely surgical intervention. But in maximum cases, as in this study, bile leak occurs mostly from minor bile duct injury, duct of luschka, GB bed or accessory bile duct and needs only expectant conservative management, leads to disappearance of the leak without any residual effect.
