This video presents the case of a 54-year-old patient who underwent a Billroth II distal gastrectomy 10 years ago with an isoperistaltic anastomosis and 48 hours before he had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis. Because of persistent pain and accentuated jaundice related to choledocholithiasis, a large sphincterotomy was performed with a duodenoscope and a standard sphincterotome used as an inverted sphincterotome. A 13.5mm balloon dilation facilitated the extraction of several 1cm bile duct stones.
