An endoscopic or radiologic percutaneous approach may be an initial minimally invasive method for treating biliary strictures after living donor liver transplantation. However, cannulation of biliary strictures is sometimes difficult due to the presence of a sharp or twisted angle within the stricture or a complete stricture. The rendezvous technique can be used to overcome this difficulty. Herein, we report a modified rendezvous technique in for a patient with duct-to-duct anastomotic complete stricture after liver transplantation.
