We report one case of percutaneous recanalization of an hepatico-jejunostomy, using Colapinto needle, in a two-yr-old patient after partial liver transplantation and occlusive anastomotic biliary stricture non-crossable with conventional interventional radiology techniques. The procedure was successfully performed and followed by biliary trans-anastomotic catheter placement. Later, the patient underwent multiple session of conventional percutaneous balloon dilatation of the anastomosis as a good flow of contrast from bile ducts to bowel loops was achieved. The patient is now without percutaneous biliary catheter since 10 months in good general conditions and with good liver function tests.
