Operative cholangiography.


Retrospective analysis of 174 operative cholangiograms done over a 3-year period confirms its substantial benefit when used selectively in patients with clinical criteria for common bile duct exploration. A low incidental ductal stone rate of 1.6%, together with a 3.3% false positive cholangiogram rate and a case of bile duct injury resulting from the procedure makes its routine application appear superfluous.
