Michael A Choti, Ross A. Abrams, Seamus O’Reilly, Floyd A. Osterman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter deals with the management of primary liver and perihepatic malignancies. Included is a discussion of hepatocellular carcinoma, proximal and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, and gallbladder cancer. Cholangiocarcinoma arising from the distal common bile duct will be discussed in other chapters. A unique feature about the management of liver and bile duct malignancies is the important therapeutic contribution of the interventional radiologist to that of the medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, and surgeon. For this reason, this chapter incorporates contributions from these four therapeutic disciplines.
