A 48-year-old male asked:
Having a concern: recently had an ercp to remove stones from the bile duct and recovered without any complications, however will the ercp or choledocholithiasis now put me at a high risk of developing biliary stricture?

If the bile duct wasn't narrow to begin with and the ERCP was smooth and nontraumatic, in my opinion, you're not at risk for stricture.
