Abstract

In the cholecystectomized patients there is no correlation between the diameter of the common bile duct and the pressure in the biliary system or in the sphincter of Oddi. It is most probably due to unresolved dilatation of the common bile duct. ERCP manometry is probably a more accurate technique for establishing the diagnosis of papillary stenosis in patients who had their gallbladder removed.
