Central Two Segmentectomy with Caudal Lobectomy and Resection of the Extrahepatic Bile Duct for Hilar Cholangiocarcinoma
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.
