Symptoms of CBD stones
Common bile duct stones may be asymptomatic but when symptomatic the most common symptom is pain abdomen which may be mild to moderate. Pain is usually located on the right upper abdomen. When Common bile duct stone causes complete obstruction of CBD patient will have jaundice. The typical feature of obstructive jaundice is pale colored stool and itching due to deposition of bile salts. If obstructed bile gets infected patients may have a fever. The triad of fever/jaundice/pain abdomen suggest cholangitis and require immediate intervention.
Diagnosis of CBD stones
USG abdomen can show large common bile duct stones but it can miss small one. For better delineating small stones, MRI/MRCP abdomen is done. Endoscopic ultrasound is available for even small stones missed on MRI. Now the recommendations are EUS guided ERCP means as small stones may pass spontaneously before doing ERCP EUS should be done and if it shows stones then the only ERCP should be done
Treatment of CBD stones
The primary treatment of Common bile duct stone is Endoscopic stone removal (ERCP stone removal). Chances of ERC stone removal is less if there are multiple and large stones. Treatment of failed ERC is surgical removal of CBD stones.
The surgical options are CBD exploration and CBD stone removal with
(A) primary closure of CBD
(B) T-tube drainage

It is said that the first presentation with these complications are rare, the first patient will have the pain of gallbladder stone and if not treated then the
rate of these complications increases but there are few patients also who present directly with gallbladder stone complications and sometimes these complications are life-threatening also. The rate of complications does not depend on the size and the number of gallbladder stones.
Gallbladder removal is called as cholecystectomy. It is commonly done by laparoscopic approach thats why it is called as laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a day care procedure. Patient is discharged on the same day of surgery and from next day onward can do normal day to day activity. This is the reason why some recommend doing Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in asymptomatic patients also .

Gallbladder is situated on the inferior aspect of right lobe of liver adhered to it. Gallbladder is removed along with this part of liver to which it is adhered. Standard lyphadenectomy along with resection this whole procedure is called as radical cholecystectomy. Cystic duct margin is sent for frozen section intra-operatively and if it comes to be positive then common bile duct is also excised and then Roux-en-Y Hepatico-jejunostomy is performed. Extended right hepatectomy is done if tumor is located at the neck and involve right sided portal structures.
Role of staging laparoscopy
Staging Laparoscopy is the first step. It is done to look for metastatic deposits missed on CT scan. If metastatic deposits are seen on staging laparoscopy then biopsy is taken from the deposits and sent for frozen section and if these comes to be positive then surgical procedure is abandoned

Bile is produced in the liver and through the common bile duct bile reaches into the duodenum where it helps in fat digestion; The narrowing of common bile duct is bile duct stricture; Bile duct stricture causes obstruction to the biliary flow and causes jaundice, this jaundice is called as obstructive surgical jaundice as there is obstruction to bile flow due to which there is jaundice and which require surgical intervention
The cause of bile duct stricture may be benign called as benign biliary stricture or malignant called as malignant biliary stricture; The cause of benign stricture is inflammatory which may be after bile duct injury; External compression over the common bile duct (CBD) like compression from pancreatic head mass or from surrounding lymph nodes can also cause biliary stricture; Primary malignancy or cancer of the common bile duct causing narrowing is malignant biliary stricture
