Özet

Background: Bile duct stones are still present in 10% to 15% of patients after the application of conventional endoscopic extraction techniques and require additional procedures for duct clearance. In the vast majority of these cases, there are 2 main problems: large stone size (>15 mm) and tapering of distal bile duct.
