  2. So what procedure was performed?

  1. Knew it is a gall bladder, but not that it has ruptured. Did it rupture presurgery or during cystectomy?. Did know about cystectomy procedure and sequel of Bile peritonitis.

  2. I was going to say a over loaded bile duct with a infected spleen leading to the bladder (gall) If it had ruptured during surgery then the chance of saving the patient was possible however had it ruptured pre- surgery depending on the rate of speed that the infection could travel the outcome would not have been favorable.
