ABSTRACT
Carcinoma of extrahepatic biliary tract is slow growing tumor but curative resection is rarely successful, Radiation therapy has been introduced for enhancing palliation and possible longterm survival. We treated a case of advanced extrahepatic biliary tract carcinoma with high dose rate remote afterloading system through T-tube as a initial irradiation postoperatively. We hope that this treatment may affect not only ennancing palliation and better quality of life but also in local tumor control.
Key Words: Carcinoma of extrahepatic biliary tract, Transcatheter irradiation, High dose rate remote afterloading system
