Treatment depends on size, location, and symptoms. Gallstones may end up in the duodenum or pylorus, which may result in gastric outlet obstruction (Bouveret syndrome). Common treatments are stone removal by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, sphincterotomy, biliary stenting, and cholecystectomy. Goals of therapy are to prevent recurrent episodes of biliary colic and lower the risk of developing choledocholithiasis, cholangitis, and gallstone pancreatitis.
