Background: The management of common bile duct stone (CBDS) has changed drastically over the past two decades, as open surgery has been supplanted by per-oral endoscopic procedures. Currently, therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the standard worldwide. After performing an endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy (EBST), endoscopic therapy entails CBDS extraction using conventional procedures. Lithotripsy is an endoscopic procedure used to remove CBDS that are too large to be extracted using conventional techniques.
Aim: The aim of the present work is to compare the results of endoscopic large balloon dilatation and mechanical lithotripsy for large CBDS.
Subjects and Methods: This prospective cohort study was conducted on 60 cases undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangial pancreatography for large CBDS who were referred to out-case's clinic and in-case's wards of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy unit of Internal Medicine Department at Tanta University Hospitals December 2019 to February 2021. Cases were divided into two equal groups. Group I included cases undergoing endoscopic papillary large balloon dilatation (EPLBD) and Group II included cases undergoing mechanical lithotripsy (ML).
Results: Success of CBDS extraction, Hb, PLT, TLC, albumin, PA, ALT, AST, creatinine and urea and CBDS parameters (diameter, CBDS size, CBDS number) after ERCP were insignificantly different between both groups. Total serum bilirubin, direct serum bilirubin and, Alkaline phosphatase after ERCP were significantly lower in EPLBD. However, Amylase and lipase were significantly higher in EPLBD.
Conclusion: Despite that the endoscopic large balloon dilatation caused significantly higher pancreatitis, it showed lower TSB, DSB and ALP. However, both techniques showed no difference regarding the success of CBDS extraction and laboratory investigations.
