Table 4 Comparison of CD insertion patterns between choledocholithiasis and control groups

From: Anatomical variations of cystic duct insertion and their relationship with choledocholithiasis: an MRCP study

CD insertion pattern Choledocholithiasis (n = 124) Controls (n = 183) P
High lateral 4 (3.2) 14 (7.7) 0.019
Mid lateral* 74 (59.7) 84 (45.9)
Mid medial 15 (12.1) 20 (10.9)
Mid posterior 26 (21) 44 (24)
Mid anterior 3 (2.4) 3 (1.6)
Low medial* 2 (1.6) 18 (9.8)
  1. The p values of comparisons with significant (p<0.05) intergroup difference are represented as bold and italics
  2. *Post hoc tests revealed significant difference between groups only for mid-lateral and low-medial insertions
