During choledochal cyst excision, a choledochal cyst is removed. These types of cysts cause the hepatic or biliary duct to enlarge, hampering bile drainage. During the procedure, the large duct is removed, and the small intestine is then moved up to the resected area.
Also Known As:
- Cyst removal
- Bile duct biopsy
