Surgery For Biliary Cancer
RADICAL CHOLECYSTECTOMY – this involves removing the cancerous gall bladder with a 2 cm margin of normal liver tissue.
PORTAL LYMPHADENECTOMY – this is a complete dissection of all the lymph nodes draining the area. It is routinely done in all biliary cancers
CYSTIC DUCT STUMP REVISION - this is done in incidental gall bladder cancers where the revision surgery is being done. This is sent for a frozen section and if positive, a bile duct resection may be performed.
