Surgical intervention for hepatolithiasis following hepaticojejunostomy (HJ) has rarely been reported. Herein, we present a case of post-HJ multiple hepatolithiasis treated with left hemihepatectomy with double HJ reconstruction. A 72-year-old woman who had undergone HJ for iatrogenic bile duct injury developed repeated cholangitis due to complicated hepatolithiasis accompanied by an atrophied left hepatic lobe and HJ stricture. Since endoscopic intervention was unsuccessful, the patient underwent left hemihepatectomy with HJ re-anastomoses of the common hepatic duct and left hepatic duct (double HJ technique). The double HJ technique with hepatectomy can be a useful option for treating complicated hepatolithiasis following HJ.
