Abstract

Background: Radical operation for hilar cholangiocellular carcinoma, including extended hepatic resection, seems to improve prognosis by increasing the surgical curability rate. Nevertheless, high postoperative morbidity and mortality have been reported in patients with obstructive jaundice. We describe the technique of "high hilar resection" and a modification of bilioenteric anastomosis for drainage of the multiple secondary or tertiary biliary radicals.
