Case description

Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) has been found to be a safe, efficient and cost-effective treatment for choledocholithiasis. Following LCBDE, the clearance may be ascertained by a cholangiogram or choledochoscopy. The common bile duct (CBD) may be closed primarily with or without a stent in situ. If the stent has remained in place and there are no complications, such as stones, a surgeon may remove it by ERCP or by conventional endoscopy.Case description: The patient was a case of choledocholithiasis. After LCBDE and choledochoscopy to confirm the absence of any residual stone, primary closure was done over a biliary stent. A 10 cm, 7 Fr. Two-flap biliary stent was placed in situ. The stent was removed endoscopically after 4 weeks by the surgeon. There is no need performing ERCP and by conventional endoscopy is feasible.
