Common bile duct (CBD) injuries cause sig- nificant morbidity and mortality. CBD injuries can be repaired by various approaches. In biliary tract recon- struction for CBD defect, we used a graft which we obtained from the posterior sheat of the rectus muscle. Method: This experimental study was carried out on eight street dogs. A tissue fragment was excised from the posterior sheat of the rectus muscle together with the fascia transversalis and peritoneum. A tube of fas- cia graft was wrapped around an FG G feeding tube. Results: Anastomotic insufficiency was determined in one dog who died on the thirteenth day. The fascial graft gained an appearance similar to bile duct in other dogs. Blood biochemical parameters were normal. Conclusion: We concluded that fascia graft can be used in repair of CBD defect as an alternative method.

Keywords: Biliary defect, fascial graft, reconstruction.
