The purpose of this report is to aid in the understanding and management of the cardiac patient with a disorder of the biliary tract. Individuals in this important group may be a joint problem for both internist and surgeon; those coming to operation often present an additional problem in anesthesiology. In an effort to facilitate the care of these patients, we are presenting (a) a discussion of the underlying physiologic disturbances; (b) the results of operation in eight selected cases, and (c) a brief discussion of basic principles of medical, surgical and anesthetic management.
