The patient was a 79-year-old woman, who had undergone pancreaticoduodenectomy(PD)for lower bile duct carcinoma in our hospital(pT3N0H0P0M0, fStage III ). Four years 6 months after the initial operation, abdominal CT revealed left bile duct expansion and hilar bile duct thickening. Therefore, based on the diagnosis of perihilar cholangiocarcinoma originating from the left hilar duct, we performed left lobectomy with caudate lobectomy and biliary tract reconstruction. The surgical specimen showed a tumor in the left hilar bile duct...

BACKGROUND: Portal vein embolization is essential for patients with biliary cancer who undergo extended hepatectomy to induce hypertrophy of the future remnant liver. Over 830 patients have undergone the portal vein embolization at our institution since 1990. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is an entity of hepatic disease characterized by fat deposition in hepatocytes. It has a higher prevalence among persons with morbid obesity, type 2 diabetes, and hyperlipidemia. Neither the mechanism of hepatic hypertrophy after portal vein embolization nor the pathophysiology of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease has been fully elucidated...

Systematic resection of the tumor-bearing portal territory is reportedly correlated with an improved survival of patients with liver tumors, especially in hepatocellular carcinoma. Despite advances in surgical management, however, anatomic resection of deeply/centrally located tumors remains a challenging procedure not only with technical difficulty but also because of decreased hepatic functional reserve frequently observed due to underlying liver disease. In this report, we have reported a novel technique that allows a promising approach for deeply/centrally located tumors with maximizing both the surgical and oncological safety...

BACKGROUND: "Hilar en bloc resection" using a no-touch technique has been advocated as a standard procedure in right-sided hepatectomies for treatment of perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC). In principle, it has never been reported for left-sided tumors. The aim is to describe the procedures of total hilar en bloc resection with left hemihepatectomy and caudate lobectomy (THER-LH) for advanced PHC and discuss feasibility and clinical significance of this novel technique. METHODS: A retrospective study using a prospectively maintained database was performed to identify eight patients who had received THER-LH for advanced PHC from January 2013 to December 2015...

BACKGROUND: Although hemihepatectomy with total caudate lobectomy (hemiHx-tc) is essential for the surgical treatment of hilar cholangiocarcinoma, the advantage of an anterior approach for hemiHx-tc has not been fully discussed technically; the significance of an anterior approach without liver mobilization for preventing infectious complications also remains unknown. METHODS: The liver parenchyma transection-first approach (Hp-first) technique is an early transection of the hepatic parenchyma without mobilization of the liver that utilizes a modified liver-hanging maneuver to avoid damaging the future remnant liver...

Cholangiocarcinoma (CC) is the second most common type of primary liver cancer after hepatocellular carcinoma. Surgical resection is considered the only curative treatment for CC. In general, laparoscopic liver surgery (LLS) is associated with improved short-term outcomes without compromising the long-term oncological outcome. However, the role of LLS in the treatment of CC is not yet well established. In addition, CC may arise in any tract of the biliary tree, thus requiring different types of treatment, including pancreatectomies and extrahepatic bile duct resections...

A 78-year-old man, who had presented with onset of ulcerative colitis at the age of 56 years and had been in remission for the past several years, attended our hospital with a diagnosis of obstructive jaundice. A hilar cholangiocarcinoma with right hepatic artery invasion was suspected on contrast enhanced CT. An endoscopic retrograde cholangiography indicated Bismuth type 2 stenosis. The stenotic bile duct brushings revealed no malignancy. Primary sclerosing cholangitis(PSC)and IgG4- related cholangitis were included in the differential diagnosis; however, a significant result could not be obtained in any other examinations...

BACKGROUND: Mucin-producing cholangiocarcinoma (MPCC) is an uncommon tumour that is clinically characterized by mucin-hypersecretion. Because the initial symptoms of MPCC may be attributed to the viscus mucobilia, the primary tumour mass may potentially be unrecognizable. We report an interesting case of curatively resected occult MPCC in situ. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year-old man was referred to our hospital with increased levels of biliary enzymes. Multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) demonstrated a diffuse dilatation of the entire biliary system without evidence of tumour mass...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to identify the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic caudate lobectomy. BACKGROUND: Caudate lobectomy has been considered as technically difficult because of the deep location of the caudate lobe and its proximity to great vessels. Due to the technical difficulty, laparoscopic caudate lobectomy was not feasible in patients with malignancy in the caudate lobe. METHODS: Six consecutive patients with caudate hepatic malignancy received laparoscopic caudate lobectomy at Samsung Medical Center from September 2007 to May 2014...
