Gallstone disease is a common and frequently occurring disease in human, and it is the main disease among the digestive system diseases. The incidence of gallstone disease is about 5%-22%, and common bile duct stones accounts for 8%-20% [1,2]. There have been different approaches to the treatment of choledocholithiasis at different times. Until the 80s of the last centuries, the main method of management of choledocholithiasis was open surgery, extraction of stones from the choledochus, drainage of the choledochus with a T-tube or choledochoduodenostomy [3,4]. But already in the late 70s there were reports of endoscopic management of choledocholithiasis [5,6]. Later, during the 80s, endoscopic management was used more and more often [7,8]. Such management has already begun to be called routine [9]. However, even then there were reports of complications of such procedure [10,11].
