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.
