Lymph nodal status is an important predictor of survival in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), but the need to perform lymphadenectomy in clinically node-negative (cN0) patients is still under debate. Aim of this study is to determine whether adequate lymphadenectomy improves long-term outcomes in cN0 patients undergoing liver resection for ICC.

Abstract

Lymph nodal status is an important predictor of survival in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), but the need to perform lymphadenectomy in clinically node-negative (cN0) patients is still under debate. Aim of this study is to determine whether adequate lymphadenectomy improves long-term outcomes in cN0 patients undergoing liver resection for ICC.
