Experimental: Patients with common bile duct stones.
Common bile duct stone removal without fluoroscopy
Procedure: Common bile duct stone removal without fluoroscopy.
ERCP stone extraction technique without fluoroscopy involves: (1) catheter or catheter with wire access into the bile duct, (2) confirmation of biliary access with catheter aspiration of bile, (3) performance of endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy or balloon dilation to widen the bile duct opening to permit stone removal, (4) stone removal - number of stones seen on EUS should match the number removed.
- Successful removal of all stones from the bile duct without the use of fluoroscopy. [ Time Frame: Up to 24 hours. ]
