A variant of bile duct carcinoma, intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) is a rare disease mainly found in Eastern Asia which encompasses a spectrum of intraductal papillary growth occ...
No effective therapies for extrahepatic metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have yet been identified. Previous studies suggested a potentially promising anti-tumor effect of combination the...
Post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) is a serious complication after major hepatectomy with extrahepatic bile duct resection (Hx with EBDR) that may cause severe morbidity and even death. The purpose...
The indocyanine green-photodynamic eye (ICG-PDE) system is useful to detect small hypervascular liver tumors, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), on the liver surface. This system may be also applied to i...
RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses light and drugs that make cancer cells more sensitive to light to kill tumor cells. This may be effective treatment for cancer of the bile duct, gallbl...
This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of guadecitabine and how well it works when given together with durvalumab in treating patients with liver, pancreatic, bile duct...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility, efficacy and safety of target therapy according to genomic and proteomic profiling combined with GEMOX in advanced or recurrent ex...
The purpose of this study is to assess efficacy and safety of Foscan (temoporfin) photodynamic therapy in the treatment of locally advanced perihilar bile duct carcinoma without...
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as erlotinib may interfere with the growth of cancer cells and slow the growth of the tumor. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of erl...
A congenital anatomic malformation of a bile duct, including cystic dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct or the large intrahepatic bile duct. Classification is based on the site and type of dilatation. Type I is most common.
Predominantly extrahepatic bile duct which is formed by the junction of the right and left hepatic ducts, which are predominantly intrahepatic, and, in turn, joins the cystic duct to form the common bile duct.
Passages external to the liver for the conveyance of bile. These include the COMMON BILE DUCT and the common hepatic duct (HEPATIC DUCT, COMMON).
FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to obstruction of BILE flow (CHOLESTASIS) in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC; BILE DUCTS, EXTRAHEPATIC). Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.
Tumor or cancer of the COMMON BILE DUCT including the AMPULLA OF VATER and the SPHINCTER OF ODDI.
