Laparoscopic biliary and enteric bypass.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Very few patients with a periampullary neoplasm present with resectable disease. Consequently, various operative and non-operative techniques have been developed to palliate patients with unresectable periampullary disease. Laparoscopic biliary (cholecystojejunostomy) and enteric bypass (gastrojejunostomy) are reasonable options as compared to their open counterparts for operative palliation. However, only a limited number of carefully selected patients meet selection criteria for laparoscopic palliation.
