Analysis of Microscopic Tumor Spread Patterns According to Gross Morphologies and Suggestions for Optimal Resection Margins in Bile Duct Cancer

Abstract

Surgical resection is the only curative treatment for extrahepatic bile duct (EHBD) cancer, but guidelines for optimal resection margins have not yet been established. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to analyze the patterns of microscopic tumor spreads and their lengths according to gross morphology and to suggest optimal resection margins for EHBD… (More)
