Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is a rare biliary malignancy of extremely aggressive nature, and its prognosis is very dismal. Its presentation in our country is most of the time with advanced disease. No randomized controlled clinical trials have been performed to establish standard treatments. With an aim to evaluate a short course of radiation therapy with and without chemotherapy in patients who undergo simple cholecystectomy without re-exploration and tumor biomarkers, a retrospective analysis was undertaken.
