OBJECTIVES:The extremely unfavorable prognosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), even after surgical resection, is mainly attributed to a high rate of recurrence. The aim of this study was to identify the molecules associated with early recurrence of ICC following resection.METHODS:Between December 1984 and July 2003, 46 patients with ICC underwent surgical resection. The clinical outcome of these patients was evaluated in view of the time of recurrence. Consequently, we categorized ICC… CONTINUE READING
