Answer

Complete surgical resection is the only therapy to afford a chance of cure for cholangiocarcinoma. Unfortunately, many patients present with unresectable disease. Additional treatment measures in cholangiocarcinoma may include the following [8] :

  • Stenting
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT)
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
