Impaction of a large GS or multiple small gallstones in the Hartmann pouch or cystic duct results in the Mirizzi's syndrome in 2 ways (1) chronic and/or acute inflammatory changes lead to contraction of the gallbladder, which then fuses with and causes secondary stenosis of the CHD, or (2) large impacted stones lead to cholecystocholedochal fistula formation secondary to direct pressure necrosis of the adjacent duct walls.
