Subtotal cystectomy and antirefluxing hepaticoduodenostomy for choledochus cyst in children.

Abstract

Total cystectomy with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy for choledochus cyst often causes malabsorption and other problems as a result of jejunal biliary diversion bypassing the duodenum. Restoration of near normal anatomy can only return the normal physiological harmony and assure normality. A simple antirefluxing hepaticoduodenostomy has proved successful.
