Abstract

Efferent loop obstruction is a very rare post-gastrectomy obstruction that can occur following Billroth-II or Roux-en-Y reconstruction. Here we report a case who underwent gastrojejunostomy for gastric outlet obstruction 30 years back and now developed efferent loop obstruction due to phytobezoar. The efferent loop obstruction was successfully resolved by laparotomy.
