Hong Jin Kim, Yong Sung Jeon, Min Chul Chim, Koing Bo Kwun
In hepatocellular carcinoma the obstructive jaundice due to tumor infiltration, hemobilia, or tumor compression is uncommon clinial feature. Only a few cases have been reported, aince Mallory reported the first case in 1947. The prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma with bile duct tumor thrombosis has been report- ed to be very poor. And most of the treatment used to be palliative procedures. such as T-tube decompression, ligation of hepatic ertery, or tranaarterial embolization. Recently, the refinement of surgical technique and perioperative metabolic management caused massive hapatic resection to be performed safely. From June 1984 to March l995, 88 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma underwent operation at the Youngnam University Medical Center. Of them, 6 patients manifested with jaundice due to bile duct tumor thrombosis. We performed hepatectomy for 4 patients, and tumor embo- lectomy with T-tube decompression for 2 patients. Among them, 2 patients who had received hepatectomy survived more than 2 years. In conclusion the aggressive surgical approach for the hepatocellular carcinoma presenting as an obstructive jaunding secondary to tumor thrombosis in the bile duct should be considered for long term survivaL
