This article focuses on a study endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) for choledocholithiasis in patients younger than 50. Despite the emerging indication choledocholithiasis ES in young patients, little information is available about the long term effects of ES on these patients. ES in younger patients is a reasonable method of treatment for choledocholithiasis. It is safe in the long term. There was a high frequency of repeat procedures and complications in post-cholecystectomy ERCP group, suggesting that duct should be cleared either pre-operatively or at the time of cholecystectomy.
