Biliary stricture developing after laparascopic cholecystectomy usually occurs at which part of the common bile duct?
D. All sides with equal frequency

During surgery, the common bile duct may be mistakenly identified as the cystic duct. Hence, surgeon may ligate the common bile duct instead of the cystic duct resulting in the development of a stricture in the upper part.
