AbstractIntroduction: Choledocholithiasis during pregnancy is relatively uncommon but it can be life-threatening. Therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) poses the risk of ionizing radiation exposure to the developing fetus. Other strategies are thus needed to tackle this problem. Presentation of case: A 38-year-old 8 weeks’ pregnant lady presented with acute onset of right upper quadrant pain. Ultrasonography showed features of acute cholecystitis and choledocholithiasis, which was later confirmed by magnetic resonance cholangiogram. Emergency combined laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and laparoscopic exploration of common bile duct (Lap ECBD) were performed. Lap ECBD through trans-cystic duct approach was adopted. The patient recovered uneventfully and was discharged on postoperative day 4. A healthy baby boy was delivered at 40 weeks’ gestation without developmental problem. Conclusion: Lap ECBD avoided ionizing radiation for choledocholithiasis during pregnancy, and can combined with LC as an effective minimally invasive procedure for complicated gallstone disease.
