Percutaneous biliary drainage into the jejunum via a tube gastrostomy in patients with complete biliary obstruction: a report of two cases.

Author information

Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore.


In recent years, percutaneous gastrostomy has been used to return bile draining from percutaneous transhepatic drainage catheters in patients with complete biliary obstruction that could not be bypassed surgically or stented either percutaneously or endoscopically. We report our initial experience with two patients in whom the combined percutaneous and endoscopic technique was used to divert the bile back into the jejunum.
