Choledocolithiasis is an important pathology in hepatobiliary surgery. Minimally invasive methods are widely accepted in the management of choledocholithiasis. Laparoscopic and endoscopic approaches can be used. Presently described is the case of an 89-year-old male patient who was treated with laparoscopy and visualization of the common bile duct (CBD) was achieved using a 10-mm laparoscopic camera. Insertion of a laparoscopic camera into the CBD can be performed when the use of choledocoscopy or intraoperative cholangiography is impossible. A 5-mm laparoscopic camera may be even more useful for this purpose.
