Abstract

Intrahepatic bile duct stones may emerge with manifestations as chronic stomach ache, cholestasis, cholangitis, abscess, post-obstructive atrophy and liver cirrhosis presentation may occur. Thus the treatment of symptomatic hepatolithiasis patients should be provided. Different methods such as biliary decompression, endoscopic, percutaneous or open surgery are recommended for the treatment of patients with intrahepatic gallstones. The aim of the treatment is to extract the stones and regain biliary drainage. But the treatment regimen to be applied should be determined after examining the age, performance condition, general condition of the patient and location of the stone carefully. In this case, we presented a young female patient who had many unsuccessful surgical interventions due to coledochal cyst and congenital malformation in bile ducts, had large stones in right and left intrahepatic bile ducts and in whom we provided complete stone-free condition through Ultra-Mini Percutaneous Hepatolithotomy (UM-PHL) using urological instruments.
