Abstract

In a 60-year-old woman, endoscopic retrograde choledochography with sphincterotomy was followed by appearance of gas in the portal venous system. Venous bleeding was seen immediately after completion of sphincterotomy. The patient recovered well. Even in the absence of duodenal perforation, sphincterotomy may be complicated by hepatic portal venous gas.
