Patients with biliary obstruction after a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass present a challenge for endoscopic management due to the anatomic re-arrangements. The incidence of primary bile duct stones has been documented to be 10% in overall. Laparoscopic-assisted trans-gastric ERCP is a technique well documented in the literature to treat this entity. In this video, we present our method to treat primary bile duct stones status post Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The technique remains a safe and effective approach in this clinical scenario.
