Liver Transplantation for Cholangiocarcinoma

Incidence of cholangiocarcinoma
- Second most common primary liver tumor

  • World-wide, incidence of intrahepatic CCA rising (10 fold)  while extrahepatic (combination of perihilar and distal CCA)  is stable or potentially decreasing. Issues with classification  (location) and increased accuracy of diagnosis may be  contributing to these shifts.

  • Range 0.5–2.0 per 100,000 in western countries, and much  higher in eastern counties
