In our patient, fibrous serosal adhesions caused a hairpin turn 14 cm below the gastrojejunostomy, and this prevented the inserted tube from moving distally within the jejunum, facilitating perforation when the tube was advanced.
Anastomotic stricture--The surgically created gastrojejunostomy stoma usually has a diameter of approximately 1 to 2 cm, yet stenosis can occur.
Contrast passing normally through the gastrojejunostomy may opacify the short blind-ending portion of the jejunum adjacent to the anastomotic site, mimicking leakage into the gastric remnant.
found that endoscopic stenting is associated with lower costs and shorter hospital stays than surgical gastrojejunostomy, which is considered the current gold standard for the relief of malignant gastric outlet obstruction.
Gould was unsure whether stenosis resulted from surgeons routinely oversewing the gastrojejunostomy in the super-super obese patients, from increased tension on the anastomosis, or from intraabdominal pressure.
Long-term follow-up studies demonstrate no nutritional difference in reconstruction choices; however, short-term function is better with a Tanner 19 anastomosis (similar to a J-pouch) vs a straight gastrojejunostomy anastomosis (89, 90).
Twelve months before perforation, she had undergone a near-total gastrectomy for cancer with proximal Roux-en-y gastrojejunostomy, and a distal esophageal stricture subsequently developed because of alkaline reflux.
In a study titled, Endolumenal tissue plication with tissue-anchors as a treatment for dilated gastrojejunostomy and gastric pouch after gastric bypass: early clinical experience (poster 102, June 18), Daniel Herron, MD, and colleagues used the EOS to create tissue folds around the stoma and in the stomach pouch of eight patients with an average of four pairs of expandable tissue anchors.
Surgeons used the robotic system to help complete the gastrojejunostomy and used conventional laparoscopic techniques in the rest of the procedure.
Surgical options in gastroduodenal Crohn's disease include bypass surgery with gastrojejunostomy (with or without vagotomy), commonly to bypass a duodenal stricture, gastroduodenostomy, duodenojejunostomy, and stricturoplasty (5, 9, 10).
