Abstract

A 64 year old man was admitted to the National Cheng Kung University Hospital for obstructive jaundice. He had received cholecystectomy 5 years previously. Sonography revealed common bile duct stones. He was treated with endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (ENBD) for 5 days for concomitant cholangitis. The muddy pigment stones disappeared completely after 10 days of infusion of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) via the ENBD tube. There were no adverse effects, and he was stone‐free 4 months later.
