The role of endoscopy in the management of choledocholithiasis

Mar 5, 2020, 18:30 PM
Gallstone disease affects more than 20 million American adults2 at an annual cost of $6.2 billion.3 The incidence of choledocholithiasis ranges from 5% to 10% in those patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy for symptomatic cholelithiasis4-7 to 18% to 33% of patients with acute biliary pancreatitis.8-11 The diagnostic approach to patients with suspected choledocholithiasis is addressed in a separate ASGE practice guideline.12 This guideline addresses the role of endoscopy in the management of patients with known choledocholithiasis. Although data regarding the natural history of choledocholithiasis are limited, available studies indicate that 21% to 34% of common bile duct (CBD) stones will spontaneously migrate,13,14 and migrating stones pose a moderate risk of pancreatitis (25%-36%)13,14 or cholangitis if they obstruct the distal duct.15 The natural history of CBD stones incidentally discovered during routine intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) at elective cholecystectomy may be less morbid than symptomatic CBD stones discovered pre-cholecystectomy.16 However, because biliary pancreatitis and cholangitis may be life-threatening conditions, removal of discovered CBD stones is generally recommended.
