Laparoscopic approach for common bile duct stones is effective and safe in single-stage management of gallstones and common bile duct stones. We present the case of a 54-year-old male patient with symptomatic gallstone disease we electively presented for cholecystectomy. The patient was without any clinical or laboratory evidence of common bile duct disease. As well ultrasonography revealed only cholelithiasis. Intraoperatively cystic and common bile duct stones are discovered; a transcystic stones extraction is demonstrated.
