Abstract :
Background: Variations in the pattern of the extra hepatic biliary tract are common and usually encountered during radiological investigations or during operations on the biliary tree. Having a good knowledge of the possible connections of the cystic duct with the common hepatic duct to form the common bile duct is very important; because variation in this area is common. Objectives: The main aim of this study is to evaluate the frequency of anatomic variations of the cystic duct insertion in relation to the extrahepatic ducts and Observed Frequency of Double Lumen Apparent Common Bile Duct Methods: Institutional based cross-sectional study design with observational data collection tool was conducted in 25 Ethiopian fixed cadavers and Forensic autopsy specimens obtained from Departments of Human Anatomy at University of Gondar, Mekelle and St. Paul Hospital Millennium Medical College Result: From the total 25 specimens dissected 9 (36%) had the ACBD and the 16 (64%) of them had CBD with one lumen. Conclusion: The billiary system formation is very variable, among the variants; the number of the supradoudenal insertion is greater than the infradoudenal insertion. ACBD is more frequent than expected which is 36% of the total data. Further researches should be done on the billiary system formation especially on the occurrence of the ACBD.
