Title

Prospective validation of an initial cholecystectomy strategy for patients at intermediate-risk of common bile duct stone

Authors
Published in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. 2016
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.
