Successful endoscopic treatment of Bouveret's syndrome by mechanical lithotripsy

, : Successful endoscopic treatment of Bouveret's syndrome by mechanical lithotripsy. Digestive and Liver Disease 41(7): E29-E31

Gastric outlet obstruction secondary to the impaction of large biliary stones into the duodenum (Bouveret's syndrome) is a well-known complication of biliary lithiasis, most often requiring surgical intervention. We report a case of successful endoscopic removal of a large stone impacted in the duodenal bulb by means of mechanical lithotripsy.
