A member asked:

Ercp report: dilated cbd with stone. cbd stone extracted, cbd cleared. occlusion cholangiogram - clear cbd. the doctor has suggested, follow-up isn't needed as the stone is completely removed. does it mean a cbd stent wasn't required to be placed?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

No mention of a stent in your information. Usually if ERCP is performed for CBD stone and the stone is removed, with a normal Cholangiogram,no stent is needed. Stents are placed for strictures or tumors to keep the CBD open. Apparently you did not need it !
