A good knowledge about the incidence and types of variations is of fundamental importance to the surgeries in the biliary region. Ignorance of these anomalies can be of serious consequences to the patient in case of both the new laparoscopic procedures as well as old open surgeries performed in this region and any surgeon should be fully aware of the great number of problems in this region as far as the variation from normal these variations can be passed on to the surgical trainees who in this potentially dangerous region. The importance of these anomalies is further enhanced by the fact that in modern day surgeries like bile duct resection, hepatic duct resection or liver transplantation requires serious recognition to the normal and abnormal.
