Keywords:Pain abdomen; Cholecystectomy; Ultrasonography; Choledocholithotomy.
Introduction: Jaundice can be classified into prehepatic, hepatic or post hepatic. Out of these, the post
hepatic jaundice caused by obstruction to the outflow of bile, also known as obstructive or surgical jaundice
is the most relevant to surgeons. Materials and methods: it is a prospective study done over 100 cases
of obstructive jaundice. Results: Highest frequencies (33%) were observed in the age group of 31-40
years with male and female ratio 1: 3.7. Serum bilirubin level in calculous obstructive jaundice cases <
4(mg%) was observed in 60% of the cases. USG detected stone in 90 patients out of a total of 100(90%).
Cholecystectomy with Choledocholithotomy and T-tube Drainage was done in 47% cases. Conclusion: For
proper management clinical evaluation of obstructive jaundice due to biliary calculi in adults is essential.
