Abstract Forty-four consecutive stricture repairs by one surgeon with long-term follow-up study are reported. Sutured anastomoses were performed in 39 patients. Essentials of the sutured repair include minimal dissection of the proximal duct, a one-layer anastomosis, mucosa-to-mucosa apposition, and a preference for hepaticojejunostomy with a T-tube stent. Eighty-six per cent of the patients treated by this technique achieved satisfactory results. This technique is the procedure of choice for repair of biliary stricture
