Therapeutic options for local palliation of symptoms such as nausea, pain, obstruction, and bleeding include palliative gastrectomy, surgical bypass via gastrojejunostomy, radiation therapy, and endoscopic stent placement.
In our study, we found statistically significant reduction in anastomotic time in stapled group than hand-sewn group in oesophagojejunostomy and jejunojejunostomy, gastrojejunostomy, ileocolic anastomosis and colorectal anastomosis with p-value < 0.05.
Since the patient history included subtotal gastrectomy, antecolic gastrojejunostomy, and Braun's anastomosis, first, the previous anastomosis was removed and the passage was unobstructed using Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy (Video 2).
In patients who are refractory to nutrition therapy or have anatomic abnormalities as the underlying etiology, surgical intervention such as Strong's procedure,[sup][4] gastrojejunostomy, or duodenojejunostomy [sup][5] may be considered.

The jejunum is separated 30 cm to 40 cm distal from the ligament of Treitz and mobilized from the mesentery to form a gastrojejunostomy with side-to-side anastomosis.
