Choledocholithiasis refers to the presence of one or more gallstones in the common bile duct.  Gallstones are concretions that form in the biliary tract, usually in the gallbladder, they may remain asymptomatic for decades. Migration of a a gallstone into the opening of the cystic duct may block the outflow of bile during gallbladder contraction. The resulting increase in gallbladder wall tension produces a characteristic type of pain (biliary colic). Cystic duct obstruction, if it persists for more than a few hours, may lead to acute gallbladder inflammation (acute cholecystitis).Source: Wikipedia
