Abstract

Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) was proposed in 323 patients with a stone in the bile duct: 116 residual lithiases, 163 choledocal lithiases with (160) or without (3) a stone-containing gallbladder still present, and 44 residual lithiases in a drained bile duct. ES was successful in 309 cases out of 323 (95.6%) and the calculi were evacuated in 279 cases after sphincterotomy (90.3%). Immediate complications occurred in 9.4% of cases and were fatal in 1%; they were characterized particulary by hemorrhage. A retrospective comparison of the mortality following biliary surgery and endoscopic sphincterotomy was in favor of the latter. Out of 140 patients reviewed after ES, 130 were completely cured (93%).
