Phases of the project

Our aim is to gain insight into the management of choledocholithiasis in the UK, focusing on the surgical management. Our project includes 3 Phases:

  1. UK Survey on management of choledocholithiasis, endorsed by AUGIS, GBIHPBA, ASGBI, BBUGSS, ALSGBI and RCS England

  2. A UK Retrospective Population Based Cohort Audit (R-ALiCE Study) looking at all the LCBDE performed in the last 5 years

  3. A UK Prospective Population Based Cohort Study (ALiCE Study), collecting data on LCBDE performed across the UK in a 6 month period.
