Example text

Performing a sideto-side choledochoduodenostomy will allow any retained stones to pass spontaneously. In the past, the most common indication for the procedure has been for primary or recurrent common duct stones. Following choledochotomy and stone extraction, a side-to-side choledochoduodenostomy has been advocated by many for primary common duct stones to prevent recurrent stone formation or to allow recurrent stones to pass spontaneously if they do recur. Today, most patients with primary common duct stones are treated by endoscopic papillotomy.

Sphincteroplasty has also been utilized for calculus disease of the biliary tree. If, after a common duct exploration, the surgeon is not certain that all of the stones have been removed, some surgeons open the duodenum and perform a sphincteroplasty so that any retained stones might pass spontaneously. It is still used for patients who have an impacted distal common duct stone that cannot be retrieved from above through a choledochotomy, or from below via endoscopic papillotomy. A sphincterotomy is performed to dislodge the stone, and most surgeons will proceed to extend the incision and convert it into a formal sphincteroplasty.

However, if the cholecystectomy was for acute cholecystitis, or if there has been bile leakage from the gall bladder bed in the liver, leaving a closed suction Silastic drain is appropriate. Many studies have shown drains to be unnecessary following cholecystectomy. The only reason for leaving a drain behind is if an unexpected bile leak occurs from a small unrecognized bile ductule in the bed of the liver. Leaving a drain in place obviates the need for percutaneous Gall bladder fossa drainage if a biloma or abscess occurs.
