ERCP plays an important role in management of common bile duct stones. Herein the investigators compare preoperative against intraoperative ERCP.
210 were included but only 198 patients were randomly divided into two groups; PES/LC (100 patients) and LC/IOES (98 patients).
The total hospital stay were significantly shorter in the group of LC/IOES
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment
