A 66-year-old woman underwent partial hepatectomy and pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy for advanced Klatskin-type cholangiocarcinoma, and five intrahepatic biliary-enteric anastomoses were created. One anastomosis between the anterior-superior segmental bile duct and the jejunum developed a refractory biliary leak. Selective portal venous embolization with use of ethanol was performed in the anterior-superior portal branch to eliminate the production of bile by the target segment. The… CONTINUE READING
