Abstract

Endoscopic sphi ncterotomy was performed in a 68-year-old female patient with multiple stones in the common bile duct and cholangitis. Because the extraction of all the stones was not achieved extracorporeal lithotripsy was performed. Following fragmentation all the residual stones passed spontaneously and no complication occurred.
