Do the surgeons that you guys work with always do intraoperative cholangiograms when they do their lap chole's? My previous job never did them with the rare exception and my current job always does them. I asked them why and they said 5% of the stones (I assume they mean in the CBD/cystic duct) are missed. Are they not identified by CT or ultrasound? Then they started to give me the typical excuses, helps identify the anatomy (don't you know the anatomy ) and it helps with familiarity for when you really need to do one. Just curious.
