Percutaneous biliary interventions in children are performed primarily for liver transplant complications. The other indications are classified as malignant or benign biliary obstruction. Biliary obstruction caused by an underlying malignancy or common bile duct (CBD) stones is not a frequently encountered problem in children.The prevalence of cholelithiasis is between 0.13% and 2% in children, and CBD stones occur in 10%–20% of children with cholelithiasis. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the preferred method for evaluation and management of pancreaticobiliary disorders including biliary obstruction due to stones and stricture, acute and chronic pancreatitis, choledochal cysts, and bile leaks. In such cases, percutaneous methods are preferred as an alternative. we present the results of percutaneous transhepatic management of bile duct stones in 12 children
