Abstract

Background. Roux-en-Y (R-Y) hepaticojejunostomy is usually accepted as the standard method of choice for biliary reconstruction in pediatric cases though the potential risks for gastrointestinal complications are higher: In this study, we examined gastrointestinal complications in pediatric patients by comparing two different strategies of R-Y reconstruction with respect to the portal clampage time.
