Abstract

Minimally invasive surgery with surgical clip placement has become the gold standard for management of cholecystitis and biliary colic due to its favorable safety profile and low rate of complications. Though generally safe, surgical clips may cause complications days to years after the cholecystectomy by migrating into the common bile duct and serving as a nidus for stone formation. To date, very few cases of this have been reported. While uncommon, this possibility should be considered in the differential diagnosis for choledocholithiasis with or without cholangitis post laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
