Do Yoon Lee, Chang Sun Yoo, Won Kyu Choi, Jae Seung Yang, Jong Soo Kim, Dong Ki Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(6):856-860.   Published online June 15, 1996
The cholelithiasis and common bile duct(CBD) stone are rare problems among children. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancretogram(ERCP) and endoscopic sphincterotomy are rarely commomly utilized in the treatment of children, primarily because there are fewerindications. ERCP is an established procedure for visualization of the biliary tract. Endoscopic sphincterotomy with stone extraction has been accepted as the treatment of choice for CBD stone removal in adults. However, the role...
