We present a 42-year-old male with strictured bilioenteric anastomosis after bile duct injury repair. The patient improved after percutaneous biliary drainage and balloon dilation of the stricture. Persistent bile reflux around the catheter insertion site prompted a cholangiogram that suggested an error in the enteric limb. Surgical exploration revealed that a torsed ileal loop was used for bilioenteric anastomosis. This error was repaired surgically. The patient had immediate and long-term resolution of symptoms.
