Of 11 patients with gallstone pancreatitis, 10 underwent preoperative ERCP. Calculi were removed from the common duct in two patients. All patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy, with normal rapid convalescence. The eleventh patient is recovering from pancreatitis with the bile duct accessed percutaneously. A combined endoscopic and laparoscopic approach to gallstone pancreatitis is safe and was associated with minimal risk in this small series.
