The aim of this study is to patients with choledocholithiasis who underwent open exploration with T- tube drainage that can’t undergo ERCP. Materials and methods: Patient age, gender, laboratory workup, period of hospital stay, time of T-tube removal and treatment response were looked back into from the hospital database. All patients underwent MRCP (Magnetic resonance Cholangio pancreatography) preoperatively. There were a total of 16 patients of which 11 (68.8%) were female and 5 (31.2%) were… 



Risk Factors Associated With Residual Stones in Common Bile Duct Via T Tube Cholangiography After Common Bile Duct Exploration

Intraopearative choledochoscopy should be strongly recommended as a routine procedure during CBD exploration to confirm the clearance of CBD, which could significantly lower the risk of residual stones postoperatively.

Results of treatment of patients with gallstone disease and ductal calculi by single-stage laparoscopic cholecystectomy and bile duct exploration

One-stage laparoscopic cholecystectomy with common bile duct exploration is after all the least invasive, safer and more effective procedure.

Management of common bile duct stones

Endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation vs endoscopic sphincterotomy for retrieval of common bile duct stones: a meta-analysis.

EPLBD could be advocated as an alternative to EST in the retrieval of large common bile duct stones because of the small number of events and the potential bias.

Adverse reactions following T-tube removal

Six of 139 patients experienced adverse reactions following the postoperative removal of a T-tube, which may be related to disruption of the fibrous tract and extravasation of infected bile into the surrounding tissues.

The Relationship of Mirizzi Syndrome and Cholecystoenteric Fistula: Validation of a Modified Classification

The authors showed that the postoperative course strongly depends on the appropriate workup before surgery and the availability of a surgeon experienced in hepatobiliary surgery, and demonstrated a strong association between Mirizzi syndrome and the presence of cholecysto-enteric fistula.
