Antro-pyloric stricture with gastric outlet obstruction is a common manifestation of corrosive-induced gastric injury. Surgical management is the only curative option as endoscopic dilatation usually fails in the long term. Billroth I gastrectomy with gastroduodenostomy is the preferred surgery as it restores normal alimentary pathway, reduces dumping and does not complicate colon mobilisation for the future oesophageal bypass. Conventionally, it is performed by the open approach. The present report is the first technical description of total laparoscopic Billroth-I gastrectomy using the laparoscopic linear cutter for corrosive-induced antropyloric stricture. The two patients who underwent this procedure had patent gastroduodenal anastomosis on the post-operative contrast study and tolerating normal diet at 9 and 6 months follow-up, respectively.
