TORRES CISNEROS, Juan Roberto; TORRES LOPEZ, Edgar  y  REBOLLAR GONZALEZ, Roberto. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy “rendezvous” as a treatment for cholecystocholedocholithiasis. A series of cases. Cir. gen [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.1, pp.26-32.  Epub 26-Mar-2020. ISSN 1405-0099.

The prevalence of lithiasic cholecystitis in Mexico is estimated on 20% of the population; of them, up to 18% may present lithiasis in the bile duct.


To report a series of cases with cholecistocholedocholithiasis resolved by a laparoendoscopic procedure.

Material and methods:

Retrospective data collection of the clinical records of patients treated with the laparoendoscopic rendezvous technique in a private hospital in Mexico City from January 2012 to January 2014.


The procedure was performed in a total of 22 patients; the mean time of accomplishment was 99.7 minutes; the success rate was 100%, with no complications present.


This study proposes a highly effective laparoendoscopic treatment for choledocholithiasis, which is carried out in a single surgical procedure, with a lower risk of complications and a more controlled technique.


Endoscopic-laparoscopic or rendezvous treatment for the resolution of choledocholithiasis during the same surgical procedure is easier, has less technical difficulty, and is easily reproducible.
