Abstract

Hepaticojejunal anastomotic stricture can result in intra-hepatic biliary stones and recurrent cholangitis. In the presence of altered small bowel anatomy, therapeutic ERCP has a low success rate. In patients with gastric bypass, there is increased expertise and efficiency in performing ERCP through transgastric access. Transjejunal access is an alternative in the absence of a gastric remnant. We present a case of a 30-years-old female with recurrent cholangitis and intra-hepatic biliary stones resulting from hepaticojejunal anastomotic stricture. The presence of severe adhesions between jejunal loops resulted in failure of double balloon enteroscopy assisted ERCP. A hybrid surgicalendoscopic approach via transjejunal enterotomy allowed access to hepaticojejunal anastomotic stricture which was dilated with through the scope balloon and subsequent removal of multiple biliary stones. A hybrid surgical-endoscopic transjejunal ERCP is a feasible approach after failure of other conventional endoscopic approaches to manage patients with hepaticojejunal anastomotic strictures
