NICOLUZZI, João Eduardo; PAUL, Gustavo Marquesini e CARON, Pedro Ernesto. Segment III cholangiojejunostomy for malignant hepatic hilus obstruction. Rev. Col. Bras. Cir. [online]. 2006, vol.33, n.1, pp. 60-61. ISSN 0100-6991. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-69912006000100015.
Cholangiocarcinoma of the hepatic hilum is a seldom curable lesion. Those patients are often managed with prostheses. Cholangiojejunostomy on the third segment of the liver seems to offer effective biliary drainage with better quality of life compared to other forms of palliation. The aim of this paper is to report a successful case of a patient with irressectable biliary tumor submitted to a surgical biliary drainage.
