Abstract

Reports of the rendezvous technique via percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage are very rare because of difficulties with insertion of the guidewire from the gallbladder into the common bile duct. In particular, our report includes a case with distal common bile duct stricture. To our knowledge, such a case has never been previously reported.
