BACKGROUND With the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) is frequently employed before operation to detect common bile duct stones. However, this is an invasive technique with recognized complications. This study evaluated the accuracy of magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) to detect choledocholithiasis in selected patients before laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS Patients scheduled for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy, with risk… CONTINUE READING
