- 27 Downloads
We read with great interest the article by Nezami et al.  on the evaluation of the outcomes of selective coil embolization of the cystic duct stump via percutaneously placed drainage catheters in patients with postcholecystectomy bile leaks.
We would like to make few constructive observations on the pathophysiology of these bile leaks related to the described technique.
