Some Experiences with Stenosis of the Sphincter of Oddi

Abstract

Stenosis at the sphincter or in the common duct may be a complication of cholelithiasis or may follow cholecystectomy. It seems likely that a certain percentage of patients having so-called "post-cholecystectomy symptoms" actually fall into this category. It suggests that the duct should be investigated for stenosis at the time of initial gallbladder surgery not to overlook this complication.
