The management of common bile duct stones in neonates has not been clearly fully standardized, although percutaneous image-guided washing of the bile duct is generally adopted as the first-line treatment. We report the case of a 10-week-old infant with a choledocholithiasis in whom anterograde sphincter balloon dilation was achieved by combining image-guided access and flexible gastroduodenoscopy. This mini-invasive strategy may be an alternative to surgery in cases of impacted choledocholithiasis resistant to bile duct washing.
