State-of-the-art treatment of common bile duct calculosis

Vadalà G., Mangiameli A., Bordonaro A., Castorina A., Caragliano P.


PDF  


Primitive or residual common bile duct calculi following common bile duct surgery can now be treated with minimum surgery using an endoscopic or X-ray guided approach. Having examined the etiopathogenetic theories, the authors analyse the treatment, in particular the possibility of endoscopic papillosphincterotomy and X-ray guided dilatation of the papilla, affirming that the latter can be extremely valuable in cases where it is difficult to canalise the latter.
