Abstract : <p>Gallstones represent a significant public health problem in modern societies, affecting 10% to 15% of the adult population (1). Post cholecystectomy the common bile duct dilates in an effort to restore the storage function of gall bladder and helps in metabolism of lipids. Based on autoptic observations, some authors identified loss of elastic fibers in the wall of CBD and distal sclerosis (post cholecystectomy), as potential causes of the above phenomenon. A prospective interventional study was performed in 50 patients with gallstone disease between September 2018 to August 2020. This study was conducted to compare the common bile duct dimensions in pre and post cholecystectomy patients. Common bile duct showed significant dilatation (not more than 10mm) in patients who underwent cholecystectomy.</p>
