An analysis of the results of surgery for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), as reported in the literature is difficult, because the patient-selection criteria are not homogenous, and the series of cases are limited by the rarity of the disease and the prolonged amount of time needed for data collection. Prognostic factors related to the characteristics of the neoplasm were analysed previously. Herein, only the early and late results of surgical operation are considered.
