Seventy-one cases of choledochoduodenostomy for benign biliary tract disease have been retrospectively reviewed. The indication for operation is most often multiple stones in the common duct, either primary or residual. Morbidity and mortality reflect the underlying pathology, and complications related to the anastomosis are uncommon.
