An 82-year-old man underwent an emergency endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for acute cholangitis secondary to choledocholithiasis 11 days earlier. At that time, since the patient was under Clopidogrel, the sphincterotomy was not performed and a plastic stent was released in the common bile duct (CBD) to bypass the stones. In this live procedure, Dr. Boškoski performs an ERCP with sphincterotomy and biliary stones extraction. During the procedure, the operator gives every fundamental tips and tricks to perform the correct procedure. At the end of the intervention, a 3D cholangiography is performed to confirm complete biliary stones extraction.
