Post-pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) benign hepaticojejunostomy stricture (PDHJS) is an infrequent long-term complication. The therapeutic options in these patients are endoscopic or percutaneous balloon dilatation and surgical revision of the anastomosis. We herein describe the preoperative diagnosis and operative steps of laparoscopic revision hepaticojejunostomy (LRHJ) in an elderly male presenting with a hepaticojejunostomy stricture (HJS) 12 years post-open PD who had a failed percutaneous intervention.
