ABSTRACT
The aim of the study is to assess management and outcome of Hilar cholongiocarcinoi in a sinale tertiary referral centre. 72 patients were idenfitied. The median age was 64 years. Male to female ratio was 1:1 .06. 90.2% of patients presented with jaundice. Resection increases survival but carries the risk or significant morbidity and mortality. There is no evidence of benefit from chemotherapy or radiotherapy in non-resected patients. Percutaneous biliary drainage is almost always necessary and ERCP should be avoided where possible.
