Hello. Thank for posting.

What is sometimes referred to as a "leaky liver" is actually a bile duct leak. A is small hole anywhere along the bile ducts can cause bile to leak into the abdominal cavity. A bile duct leak can arise either as a complication of a surgery, such as a gallbladder removal or liver transplant or from trauma to the biliary system.
