Abstract

The aim of the work is to assess the performance and effectiveness of intraoperative cholangiography or choledochoscopy in the prevention of choledocholithiasis oversight. The effectiveness of choledochoscopy was assessed in 50 patients during the years 2001–2002. Since 2000 intraoperative cholangiography has been performed on all patients after classic cholecystostomy in the absence of indications to choledochotomy. The effectiveness of intraoperative cholangiography was assessed in 50 patients in 2001. Both groups underwent ultrasonographic control and tests of biochemical parameters a year after surgery. The advisability of performing intraoperative cholangiography or choledochoscopy and their high degree of effectiveness in the prevention of choledocholithiasis oversight was confirmed.
