Surgical treatment for advanced gallbladder cancer has generally had a poor outcome. However, some recent studies have reported the possibility of improved prognosis by extensive surgery.1–3 However, high mortality and morbidity rates after aggressive surgical approaches, especially after hepatopancreatoduodenectomy (HPD), have also been reported.4 We performed a central bisegmentectomy of the liver with pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy (PpPD) for advanced gallbladder cancer and the patient had a good prognosis.
