Abstract

The indication for surgical resection due to hilar bile duct cancer (BDC) with vessel reconstructions is still controversial. We report herein a successfully resected case due to hilar BDC with hepatic artery (HA) and portal vein (PV) reconstructions using autograft from a resected liver. A 57-year-old woman was diagnosed as hilar BDC, and computed tomography showed a tumor invaded left and common hepatic duct, right and left HA, and left main branch of PV. Because the extrahepatic area of right HA was free from the tumor, we performed left hepatectomy and caudate lobectomy with HA and PV reconstructions. We used auto left hepatic vein graft from the resected liver for PV reconstruction, because there was no appropriate size vein graft, e.g. inferior mesenteric vein. The patient is alive without any evidence of recurrence for 8 months after the surgery.
