Hepaticocholecystostomy and cholecystojejunostomy for bile drainage. A palliative procedure.


A new anastomotic technique was performed in a second-look operation for obstructive jaundice after an initial Rous-en-Y cholecystojejunostomy for an adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This palliative bypass procedure consisted of the interposition of the gallbladder between the common hepatic duct and the jejunum to allow the free drainage of bile.
