The resectability rate of hilar bile duct carcinoma is reported to be variable and to inversely correlate with the size of the associated liver resection. In an attempt to reduce the risk of postoperative liver failure, the induction of a hypertrophy of remnant liver by preoperative portal vein embolization (PVE) has been proposed. We hereby analyse the results and the technical aspects of this procedure along with our personal experience.
