PMID:  7837007     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A protocol for bile duct lithotripsy was formulated in early 1988 after review of the literature and encouragement by gastroenterologists. Seven cases have been treated at our center and are being reported to explain our current concept of this therapy. Failure of the Food and Drug Administration to approve gallstone lithotripsy has complicated the promulgation of this procedure.
