Renee....liver transplantations for extrahepatic CC have been conducted for quite some time now. The criteria is very stringent. This link will lead you to the numerous postings about this subject:

Yes, the University of Maryland has only completed the very first transplant however; there are other institutions with a higher volume of transplantations for this disease much of it based on the Mayo Clinic Liver transplantation protocol.
Our Tiff is recovering from a domino transplant in where the donor received a transplant and then his liver was donated to Tiff. So, things are happening however; the majority of people don't qualify for this procedure.
The only way to know for sure is to contact a center with a proven track record of successful tansplantations.
