Cancers, Vol. 13, Pages 1647: Current Status and Future Perspectives of Perioperative Therapy for Resectable Biliary Tract Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Review Cancers doi: 10.3390/cancers13071647 Authors: Changhoon Yoo Sang-Hyun Shin Joon-Oh Park Kyu-Pyo Kim Jae-Ho Jeong Baek-Yeol Ryoo Woohyung Lee Ki-Byung Song Dae-Wook Hwang Jin-Hong Park Jae-Hoon Lee Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) are a group of aggressive malignancies that arise from the bile duct and gallbladder. BTCs include intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IH-CCA), extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (EH-CCA), and gallbladder cancer (GBCA). BTCs are highly heterogeneous cancers in terms of anatomical, clinical, and pathological characteristics. Until recently, the treatment of resectable BTC, including surgery, adjuvant chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, has largely been based on institutional practice guidelines and evidence from small retrospective studies. Recently, several large randomized prospective trials have been published, and there are ongoing randomized trials for resectable BTC. In this article, we review prior and recently updated evidence regarding surgery, adjuvant and neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and adjuvant radiation therapy for patients with resectable BTC.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on the very low-certainty evidence found in four trials in people with curative-intent resection for cholangiocarcinoma, we are very uncertain of the effects of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy (mitomycin-C and 5-FU; gemcitabine; gemcitabine plus oxaliplatin; or capecitabine) versus no postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy on mortality. The effects of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy compared with no postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy on serious adverse events are also very uncertain, but the result of the single trial showed 20% higher occurrences of haematologic adverse events. We assessed the cer...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that a fluorescent IGF-1R-targeted antibody could help detect gallbladder tumors. Tumor-specific imaging technology can be applied to endoscopy, laparoscopy, and robotic surgery for better management of gallbladder cancer.PMID:34462395 | DOI:10.5009/gnl210164

Korean J Gastroenterol. 2021 Aug 25;78(2):94-104. doi: 10.4166/kjg.2021.111.ABSTRACTMalignant hilar obstruction (MHO) is considered an aggressive perihilar obstruction caused by cholangiocarcinoma, gallbladder cancer, or metastatic malignancies and has a poor prognosis. Although surgical resection is the only curative treatment method, the majority of patients with MHO do not undergo surgery due to an advanced inoperable state at presentation. Currently, effective biliary drainage provides the necessary palliation for symptomatic improvement. Among the drainage methods, percutaneous access may be preferred, especially for ...
