Bile duct tumors
Benign tumors[edit | edit source]
- papillomas, polyps - the essence is fibromas, lipomas, granulomas; …,
- they can become obstructive and need to be removed.
Malignant tumors[edit | edit source]
- It is most often a medullary carcinoma.
- They infiltrate the bile duct or are in the papilla (it is difficult to decide whether they come from the bile duct, duodenum or pancreatic duct).
- Unfortunately, it is worse in the upper parts - they are often diagnosed late (Klatskin's tumor).
- Clinical image – intermittent painless obstructive icterus/jaundice with loss of appetite, weight loss.
- papillary tumor - hemiduodenopancreatectomy;
- tumors of the strain:
- resection and anastomosis of the bile duct into the GIT;
- but more often palliative - choledochoduodenoanastomoses.
