The role of endoscopy in the evaluation of suspected choledocholithiasis

Nov 14, 2016, 20:27 PM
Choledocholithiasis is most commonly suspected in the scenarios of symptomatic cholelithiasis and acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP), with other presentations such as de novo bile duct stones in the postcholecystectomy patient occurring less often. The initial evaluation of suspected choledocholithiasis should include serum liver biochemical tests (eg, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, and total bilirubin) and a transabdominal ultrasound (US) of the right upper quadrant. Fractionation of bilirubin can be considered in clinical scenarios in which isolated indirect hyperbilirubinemia (eg, Gilbert syndrome) may be present.
