BACKGROUND The high recurrence rate of hepatolithiasis, together with the high operative risk of hepatectomy for specifically located stones, has not been effectively settled until now. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of using chemical biliary duct embolization (CBDE) to achieve chemical hepatectomy in a rabbit model of hepatolithiasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The animal model of hepatolithiasis was established using the methods of obstruction… CONTINUE READING
