  • Choledochal Cyst-. a congenital anatomic malformation of a bile duct, including cystic dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct or the large intrahepatic bile duct. classification is based on the site and type of dilatation. type i is most common.
  • Hemobilia-. hemorrhage in or through the biliary tract due to trauma, inflammation, cholelithiasis, vascular disease, or neoplasms.
  • Choledochal Cyst-. cystic dilatation of the hepatic duct or bile duct.
  • Bile Duct Leakage-. the leakage of bile into the abdominal cavity as a result of injury to the bile duct.
  • Benign Recurrent Intrahepatic Cholestasis-. reappearance of cholestasis caused by obstruction within the liver by non-cancerous conditions.

These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Adhesions of biliary tract
  • Atrophy of biliary tract
  • Hypertrophy of biliary tract
  • Ulcer of biliary tract

Patient Education

Bile Duct Diseases

Your liver makes a digestive juice called bile. Your gallbladder stores it between meals. When you eat, your gallbladder pushes the bile into tubes called bile ducts. They carry the bile to your small intestine. The bile helps break down fat. It also helps the liver get rid of toxins and wastes.

Different diseases can block the bile ducts and cause a problem with the flow of bile:

  • Gallstones, which can increase pressure in the gallbladder and cause a gallbladder attack. The pain usually lasts from one to several hours.
  • Cancer
  • Infections
  • Birth defects, such as biliary atresia. It is the most common reason for liver transplants in children in the United States.
  • Inflammation, which can cause scarring. Over time, this can lead to liver failure.

Gallbladder Diseases

Your gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ under your liver. It stores bile, a fluid made by your liver to digest fat. As your stomach and intestines digest food, your gallbladder releases bile through a tube called the common bile duct. The duct connects your gallbladder and liver to your small intestine.

Your gallbladder is most likely to give you trouble if something blocks the flow of bile through the bile ducts. That is usually a gallstone. Gallstones form when substances in bile harden. Rarely, you can also get cancer in your gallbladder.

Many gallbladder problems get better with removal of the gallbladder. Fortunately, you can live without a gallbladder. Bile has other ways of reaching your small intestine.
