Use of a Lithotripter to Salvage a Bile duct stone and Kinking Retrieval Basket In the Distal Common Bile Duct
A 65‐year‐old man was transferred from a secondary hospital after a bile duct stone and a retrieval basket became impacted in the common bile duct (CBD) during an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Prior to transfer, lithotripsy after exchanging the basket sheath for a metal sheath was tried but failed because of the fracture of a wire near the patient's mouth. After transfer to our facility, we attempted an ERCP prior to considering surgery.
