Authors: Zirui He, Lu Zang

Abstract

After the advent of the concept of laparoscopic assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG), the digestive reconstruction poses arguments among surgeons. There are three major different ways including Billroth I gastroduodenostomy, Billroth II gastrojejunostomy and Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy, and each of them has its own trick. In this article, the technical tips and pitfalls of each reconstruction will be discussed based on studies and author’s experience.
