Endoscopic ultrasonography-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) remains an alternative to Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for malignant extrahepatic biliary obstruction. Biliary drainage in altered surgical anatomy remains a challenge to endoscopists. Enteroscopy-assisted ERCP (eERCP) has been utilised for biliary access in patients with altered surgical anatomy, but with suboptimal results. We report a case of 51-year-old male, a case of carcinoma stomach undergone distal D2 gastrectomy with gastrojejunostomy with distal biliary obstruction, who underwent EUS-BD antegrade approach with technical and clinical success, with a review of literature of EUS BD in altered surgical anatomy.
