The group without preoperative drainage non-PBD was composed of patients, and the group with biliary drainage PBD contained patients.

Chronic biliary tract parasitic infection, seen commonly in Southeast Asia due to Clonorchis sinensis and Opisthorchis viverrinihas also been identified as a risk factor. As Klatskin tumors are typically resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, surgical resection of the tumor is the only curative treatment but it is not always an option in those patients with widespread metastasis.

In that series, postoperative radiation therapy did not improve survival in either resected or palliated patients.

Postoperative radiotherapy does not improve survival. Complete resection of the tumor, especially in early-stage klatzkin, offers hope of long-term survival. With the advances in the sensitivity and specificity of non-invasive imaging tests over recent years, staging laparoscopy is falling into disuse.
