Abstract

Stomal stenosis occurs rarely after choledochoduodenostomy and is usually corrected by surgical revision. We describe four patients treated by diathermy enlargement of the orifice at duodenoscopy. The results justify further evaluation of this technique in patients who are prohibitive surgical risks.
