A patient with near-fatal blunt trauma to the liver was subsequently found to have complete disruption of the left hepatic and common ducts. Establishment of biliary-enteric drainage by means of Roux-en-Y jejunal limb required the use of a specially designed Silastic transhepatic stent. This stent provided direct contact between the jejunal mucosal graft and the recessed left hepatic duct. Guidelines for biliary tract reconstruction are discussed.
