Abstract

Mirizzi syndrome is an uncommon disorder. Preoperative suspicion is crucial for correct preoperative diagnosis. ERCP is the most useful tool for correct preoperative diagnosis and consequent prevention of common bile duct injury during operation. Should Mirizzi syndrome be diagnosed, laparoscopic treatment is a feasible and safe procedure, especially for type I Mirizzi syndrome.
