ERCP plays an important role in management of common bile duct stones. Herein the investigators compare preoperative against intraoperative ERCP.

210 were included but only 198 patients were randomly divided into two groups; PES/LC (100 patients) and LC/IOES (98 patients).

The total hospital stay were significantly shorter in the group of LC/IOES

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Preoperative Versus Intraoperative Endoscopic Sphincterotomy for Management of Choledocholithiasis and Cholecystolithiasis
