Abstract

Percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) is an effective treatment for cholecystitis in patients with poor general condition. However, there has been rare established as definite management of cholecystitis instead of interval cholecystectomy especially in patient with unresectable Klatskin tumor. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of ultrasound guided percutaneous cholecystostomy in the treatment of acute cholecystitis in patients with unresectable Klatskin tumor.
