Coledocolitiasis

Alrededor del 15% de individuos con cálculos biliares también presenta cálculos en el conducto biliar común. El conducto biliar común es un pequeño tubo que lleva la bilis desde la vesícula biliar hasta el duodeno. La obstrucción de este conducto también puede conducir a la obstrucción del conducto pancreático, dado que ambos conductos suelen estar conectados. Si el conducto pancreático también está obstruido, es muy seguro que se presente la pancreatitis.
