Adjuvant radio-chemotherapy for extrahepatic biliary tract cancers

Bonet Beltrán, Marta
Published in BMC Cancer. 2011, vol. 11, 267
Abstract Extrahepatic biliary duct cancers (EBDC) are uncommon malignancies characterized by a poor prognosis with high rate of loco-regional recurrence. The purpose of the present study is to assess the feasibility and the potential impact of adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) in a series of patients treated in one institution.
