Abstract

The technique of percutaneous transhepatic sphincterotomy is described. This procedure was employed in 3 patients with common bile duct (CBD) stones in whom a previous attempted endoscopic procedure had failed for anatomical reasons (a Billroth II gastric resection or a partial gastric resection with Braun anastomosis). Complete immediate success was obtained in all 3 patients. Furthermore, no major complications occurred during transhepatic treatment. The authors suggest that PTS be employed electively in patients with diseases of the biliary tree in whom the endoscopic approach fails.
