Abstract

The records of 86 patients with primary adenocarcinoma of the gallbladder were reviewed. All patients were staged according to the Nevin classification. Twenty-nine patients underwent resection, 57 were submitted to palliative procedures or exploratory laparotomy. Survival was directly related to tumor staging and modality of treatment. The 5- and 10-year survival expectancy after curative resection was 46.8% in stage II patients, 14.2% and 0%, respectively, in stage V patients. None of the unresectable cases survived beyond 24 months, except for one patients who lived 62 months. No significant difference in survival expectancy was found between resectable and unresectable patients with stage V tumor.
