Abstract

Gallbladder cancer (GC) is associated with a poor prognosis.The goal of palliation for advanced GBC is relief of pain and jaundice along with prolongation of life. But various palliative strategies which are used provide only limited survival benefit. Here, we present a series of patients of LAGBC-treated at our center with chemoradiation using EBRT and concurrent Capecitabine along with best supportive care.
