Abstract

A 35-year-old man developed obstructive jaundice ten months after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography extracted a foreign body from the common bile duct. Histopathological examination revealed that the extracted foreign body was the remnant of vicryl endoloop with calcification around. Since laparoscopic surgery has become a very common procedure, endoclips and endoloops are used more frequently. It is emphasized that careful surveillance and strict follow-up are necessary to avoid similar complications.
