The study was conducted at one of the surgical units of Khyber Teaching Hospital Peshawar and PGMI/LRH, Peshawar at various timing extending from september 1980 to September 2000 (20 years). These patients were followed up for 6 months to one year time. Only 3 patietn presented with fever, pain epigastrium and mild Jaundice which recovered completely with conservative treatment. No patient presented with fully established sump syndrome. From this study and many more in world literature it was concluded that "Sump" syndrome though well recognised but is ill defined and a rare complication of CDD. Choledochoduodenostomy (CDD) can be considered as gold standard for treatment of CBD calculi.
