Résumé : In the case of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass with a long afferent limb, the need to carry out an ERCP still represents a technical challenge. In this article we describe the case of a 50-year-old male admitted to the ER for abdominal pain in the right upper quadrant, in the context of prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (4 years ago), with uncomplicated gallbladder stones discovered 3 months ago. The patient presented recurrent abdominal pain for 3 months but in the last few days the pain became continuous. The blood test revealed elevation of hepatic enzymes and bilirubin levels. The US findings were uncomplicated gallbladder lithiasis with no signs of lithiasic migration in the common bile duct, despite strong clinical suspicion and positive MRI 3 weeks before. We decided therefore to perform a laparoscopic cholecystectomy with perioperative cholangiography and a laparoscopy-assisted transjejunal ERCP through a jejunostomy 80 cm distal to the ligament of Treitz, allowed us to successfully carry out sphincterotomy and extraction of a 10mm lithiasis from the common bile duct.
