Gastrojejunocolic fistula is a late complication of gastroenterostomy and is associated with inadequate gastric resection and incomplete vagotomy. In the past, attempted primary repair had high mortality and staged operations were normally performed. We present two cases of gastrojejunocolic fistula and discuss the modern management of this condition. In both cases, improved nutritional support allowed successful one-stage surgical repair to be performed.
Key words: Gastrectomy; Gastric fistula; Gastroscopy; Intestinal fistula
