The authors of this case report found stone fragments of calcium carbonate in the common bile duct after SWL of stones in the pancreatic duct. They speculate that these fragments have passed through fistulas to get there. It is difficult to interpret the angiographic images, and although fistulas between the two ducts cannot be excluded, my own suspicion is that the bile duct fragments were pancreatic fragments that had been transported there by reflux from the common path of these two ducts.
