Improved survival following right trisectionectomy with caudate lobectomy without operative mortality: surgical treatment for hilar cholangiocarcinoma.
ABSTRACT We conducted this study to assess the safety of performing right trisectionectomy with caudate lobectomy for hilar cholangiocarcinoma by analyzing postoperative mortality and morbidity, and to evaluate the effect of such procedure on pathological curability and long-term overall survival.
A retrospective clinicopathological analysis was performed for 16 hilar cholangiocarcinoma patients who underwent right trisectionectomy with caudate lobectomy from June 1999 to April 2003. The median follow-up period was 36.9 months. The preoperative Bismuth-Corlette type was type II in four patients, type III(A) in 10 patients, and type IV in two patients.
The median liver volume after hepatic resection was 21.9% of the total liver volume. Postoperative complications including one chronic liver failure developed in 12 patients, but no in-hospital deaths occurred. A postoperative pathological examination showed a cancer free margin in all of the proximal resection sites, although three cases had carcinoma in situ (CIS) lesions in the distal margin that were confirmed during surgery. The 1-, 3-, and 5-year overall survival rates were 94.1%, 64.2%, and 64.2%, respectively.
We obtained excellent survival rates without any in-hospital deaths following right trisectionectomy with caudate lobectomy. This procedure may be an effective surgical procedure that can be executed to achieve low mortality rate and high pathological curability for hilar cholangiocarcinomas, except for Bismuth type III(B).

ABSTRACT: Extended liver resection may provide long-term survival in selected patients with Bismuth type IV hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCCA). The purpose of this study was to identify anatomical factors that predict curative-intended resection.Annals of surgical treatment and research. 08/2014; 87(2):87-93.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Bismuth type IV hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HC) tumors are usually considered unresectable. The strategies of high hilar resection while preserving liver parenchyma can achieve potentially one-stage curative resection for this condition. The aim of the present study was to investigate the feasibility and safety of available strategies. METHODS: Fifty-one consecutive patients with bismuth type IV HC who underwent one-stage resection were retrospectively reviewed with regard to curative resection rate, remnant liver volume, morbidity, mortality, and survival time. RESULTS: The total median survival time was 29 months. The R(0) (curative resection) rate was 57.8 %. The ratio of the remnant liver volume (RLV) to the standard liver volume (SLV) ranged from 35.0 to 60.6 %, with a mean of 44.5 %. The in-hospital mortality and morbidity rates were 3.9 and 37.2 %, respectively. In the R(0) patients' survival, there was not a significant difference between bilioenteric anastomosis and hepatoenteric anastomosis (P = 0.714). CONCLUSIONS: Combined caudate lobe and high hilar resection (CCHR) is technically safe and oncologically justifiable and could be adopted with a high cure rate as a one-stage resection procedure for most patients with Bismuth type IV HC whose total bilirubin level is less than 20 mg/L and whose direct bilirubin is more than 60 % of total bilirubin.World Journal of Surgery 01/2013; · 2.23 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: A right and left hepatic trisectionectomy and an extended trisectionectomy are the largest liver resections performed for malignancy. This report analyses a series of 23 patients who had at least one repeat resection after a hepatic trisectionectomy for colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM). A retrospective analysis of a single-centre prospective liver resection database from May 1996 to April 2009 was used for patient identification. Full notes, radiology and patient reviews were analysed for a variety of factors with respect to survival. Twenty-three patients underwent up to 3 repeat hepatic resections after 20 right and 3 left hepatic trisectionectomies. In 18 patients the initial surgery was an extended trisectionectomy. Overall 1-, 3- and 5-year survival rates after a repeat resection were 100%, 46% and 32%, respectively. No factors predictive for survival were identified. A repeat resection after a hepatic trisectionectomy for CRLM can offer extended survival and should be considered where appropriate.HPB 07/2013; · 1.94 Impact Factor
