Complications of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage procedures range from skin discomfort to life-threatening arterial hemobilia. A thorough understanding of biliary anatomy and postprocedure care is essential if such procedures are to be performed. This article summarizes the anatomic, technical, and clinical issues related to biliary interventions and assists the interventional radiologist in the management of complications encountered in patients undergoing biliary interventions.
