BACKGROUND/AIMS Gallbladder carcinoma, especially advanced cancer that has invaded the subserosal or deeper layers, has a poor prognosis. Recently, radical operations combining resection of the liver and pancreas with extended lymph node dissection have been introduced to improve the prognosis of advanced gallbladder carcinoma. We have introduced central inferior (Couinaud's subsegments 4a and 5; S4a+S5) hepatic subsegmentectomy and pancreatoduodenectomy combined with extended lymphadenectomy… CONTINUE READING
