Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Spontaneous biliary perforation (SBP) in pediatrics is rare and historically has been treated with laparotomy for attempted repair and cholecystectomy. In recent years, management has evolved into a conservative approach, opting for cholecystostomy and peritoneal drainage over cholecystectomy. In this case, we report the first successful conservative management of SBP using an exclusively laparoscopic approach without cholecystectomy in a pediatric patient.
