Abstract

  Bleeding after laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be due to multiple reasons and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, if not recognized and treated promptly. Bleeding from the cystic artery, ligaments of liver, or from the abdominal wall during the placement of ports are common sources of bleeding in these cases. Injury to the inferior epigastric artery and its branches are more common in gynecological and obstetric surgery and is infrequently reported after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However, the course of inferior epigastric artery is extremely variable. In this report, we describe one such case that highlights the variability in the course of inferior epigastric artery making it vulnerable to injury.
