Abstract: Malignant obstructive jaundice can be palliated by either surgical bypass, which has the advantage of long-term patency, or by stent placement, which has the advantage of initial lower morbidity and mortality. We describe a technique, laparoscopic cholecystjejunostomy, which has the advantage of both. We predict that laparoscopic surgery, which has already had a major impact on biliary stone surgery, will also have a major impact on interventional endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.
