Endoscopic papillo sphincterotomy for biliary disease

Endoscopic papillo sphincterotomy for biliary disease

Medical Bulletin of Fukuoka University 8(4): 383-386

Endoscopic papillosphincterotomy (EST) was performed in 27 patients. The indications for sphincterotomy were as follows: 14 patients with common duct stones after cholecystectomy, 6 inoperable patients with bile duct stones and an intact gallbladder, 3 patients with hepatolithiasis and others. In 1 patient, a calculus ensnared by the basket became impacted in the sphincterotomy opening and had to be released by emergency operation. Calculi were cleared in 85%. Endoscopic sphincterotomy is an effective alternative to conventional surgical procedures for the removal of stones in the common bile duct.
