[Biliary tract cancer following bilioenteric anastomosis]

[Article in Spanish]


Two cases of carcinoma of bile ducts after bilioenteric anastomosis are presented. The first one arose in the gallbladder eleven years after cholecystojejunostomy; the second, in the common bile duct three years after cholecystectomy and choledocoduodenostomy. The reflux into the bile duct and recurrent infections can be risk factors in tumor development. Although palliative resection was feasible in one case, the early tumor spread and the invasion of the enteric structure, resulted in a poor outcome in the second case.
