Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) is a minimally invasive procedure used for the treatment of both benign and neoplastic stenosis of biliary tree. During this procedure a rate of complications can occours: bleeding is the most frequent one, and often it is caused by portobiliary fistulas. We present the case of a high-flux portobiliary fistula arising during PTC performed for a stenosis of intrapancreatic tract of the common bile duct caused by a pancreatic adenocarcinoma and treated by embolization with microcoils of the portal branch.
