Abstract

Afferent Loop Syndrome (ALS) is a complication caused by obstruction of the biliopancreatic limb after gastrointestinal reconstruction. Re-operation is preferred in surgically fit patients, but higherrisk patients have limited surgical options. We present a case of ALS secondary to duodenal cancer recurrence after a Whipple procedure, treated successfully with the novel Endoscopic Ultrasoundguided Gastrojejunostomy stent placement (EUS-GJ).
