Introduction: Bile duct injury (BDI) after cholecystectomy remains a serious complication with major implications for patient outcome. For most major BDIs, the recommended method of repair is a hepaticojejunostomy (HJ). We conducted a retrospective review from 5 Danish hepatobiliary centres aiming to examine the perioperative and the long-term outcome after reconstructive HJ.
