Abstract

Five patients with choledocholithiasis refractory to standard extraction methods after endoscopic sphincterotomy underwent peroral cholangioscopy with the 'mother-daughter' endoscopy system. Electrohydraulic lithotripsy of nine stones was performed successfully and without complication, other than minor transient bleeding in one patient. The outer sheath of the 'daughter scope' sustained a linear burn in one instance. This method of stone fragmentation is a useful adjunct to achieve ductal clearance in difficult cases.
