  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

This review will compare the classical two-stage approach (endoscopic sphincterotomy followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy) and the single-stage laparo-endoscopic rendezvous technique and cholecystectomy for the treatment of cholelithiasis and common bile duct stones.
