Abstract

Initial cholecystectomy for patients at intermediate risk of common bile duct (CBD) stones (including increased liver function tests but bilirubin <4 mg/dL and no cholangitis) showed shorter length of stay and fewer CBD investigations without increased morbidity compared with sequential CBD endoscopic assessment and subsequent cholecystectomy in a randomized controlled trial. The objectives were to prospectively validate these results in daily clinical practice and discuss current guidelines.
