bile duct n. any of the ducts that convey bile from the liver. Many small ducts drain into the right and left hepatic ducts, which unite to form the main bile duct, the common hepatic duct. This joins the cystic duct, which leads from the gall bladder, to form the common bile duct, which drains into the duodenum.
