Abstract

Commonly performed surgical treatment for hilar cholangiocarcinoma includes bile duct resection and various types of hepatectomy with caudate lobectomy. Central two segmentectomy with caudal lobectomy produces a wide sectional surface of the remaining liver and complicated bile duct reconstruction. However, central two segmentectomy preserves a larger volume of remaining liver compared with extended right or left hepatic lobectomy (Table 1). We indicated central two segmentectomy for a case that was expected to have poor remaining liver function.
