Choledocholithiasis, historically the preserve of surgeons, is now most commonly treated by ERCP, but over recent years there has been a growing recognition of surgery as the alternative primary treatment.  

This session will present:

  1. A perspective on why primary surgical treatment should be considered
  2. The results of the Northern Health group 
  3. The technique we use for laparoscopic transcystic CBD exploration.
