Core Tip Comprehensive understanding of the extrahepatic bile duct anatomy is imperative to guide surgical procedures and perform endoscopic retrograde cholangiography. This study aimed to investigate the anatomical risk factors associated with the extrahepatic bile ducts in patients diagnosed with choledocholithiasis, specifically focusing on preventing stone recurrence after surgical intervention and endoscopic lithotomy. Several independent risk factors for choledocholithiasis were identified in our retrospective analysis of medical records. Noteworthy factors include an enlarged diameter of the common hepatic and bile ducts, a shorter length of the common hepatic duct, and a reduced angle of the common bile duct. Our findings underscore the significance of these anatomical features in the incidence of common bile duct stones. Our findings provide valuable insights into the relationship between extrahepatic bile duct anatomy and choledocholithiasis risk.
