Peri-hilar cholangiocarcinoma poses a significant therapeutic challenge secondary to the anatomic location and the underlying tumor biology. We sought to determine if patients with proximal cholangiocarcinoma who undergo an R1 resection (with curative intent) will have an improved survival compared to patients who are not resected and are managed with optimal endoscopic and medical therapy.
