A 68-year-old man with a history of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass presented with cholangitis secondary to obstructive choledocholithiasis. Percutaneous cholangioscopy and lithotripsy were selected as an ultra minimally-invasive approach to manage the common bile duct (CBD) stone. Acute decompression and drainage were performed percutaneously with insertion of an internal-external drainage catheter via the gallbladder and cystic duct into the common bile duct (CBD). After tract maturation, the patient underwent percutaneous cholangioscopy and lithotripsy, which resulted in successful CBD stone removal in the setting of previous Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
