Abstract

Objective: To review the imaging findings in late complications of cholecystectomy. Conclusions: Late postcholecystectomy complications include papillary stenosis, choledocholithiasis, biliary stricture, remnant gallbladder, and dropped gallstones. Such complications can cause substantial morbidity, and knowledge of the imaging appearances can facilitate expeditious diagnosis and treatment.
