Choledocho-Duodenoscopy During CBD Exploration
11 months ago
Surgical video case: CBDE is a feasible and effective method for clearance of CBD stones at the time of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. By passing choledochoscope through the Pappi any distal impacted stone can be treated. This approach, although not widely used, reduces the need for ERCP, which has inherent complications. In the longer term, this series showed a significant reduction in the rate of CBD stone recurrence.
