    Abstract : Open surgical versus endoscopic treatment of CBD stones in 80 elderly not cholecystectomized patients revealed a similar efficacy of stone clearance and early major complication rates, as well as total complication rates and hospitalization time in the two groups during 5 to 9 years follow-up. However, more patients in the endoscopically treated group died from heart disease, suggesting surgery to become the favoured treatment in this selected category of patients. READ MORE
