Anatomy has remained an interest of physicians throughout the ages. The biliary tract spans from the liver to the hepatoduodenal mesentery, pancreas, and into the duodenum. Therefore, it is important for not only hepatobiliary surgeons but also general gastrointestinal surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists, and pathologists to be familiar with biliary anatomy and its variants. While surgery for hilar cholangiocarcinoma is one of the most challenging procedures, cholecystectomy is one of the most common procedures done from the beginning of surgical training. We hope that by answering the following questions, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of biliary anatomy and a greater appreciation for it.
