Re: Survival Benefit Of Recurrent Cholangiocarcinoma

Percy....I so much agree in taking an aggressive approach when possible and would love to see similar prospective abstracts referring to locoregional recurrences treated with radiation therapies alone or in combination with surgical intervention.     
This article should be printed out and discussed with physicians.  Thanks for posting,
