Resumen

CASTILLO K, Jaime et al. Survival of patients with early gallbladder cancer. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.5, pp.417-422. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262014000500004.

Background: Advanced gallbladder cancer has a high mortality. Therefore, this tumor should be diagnosed and treated in early stages. Aim: To analyze the survival rates of patients with an early gallbladder cancer. Material and Methods: Retrospective analysis of medical records of patients with early gallbladder cancer diagnosed until 2003. From that date, all patients with gastrointestinal cancer were registered in a prospective record. Patients with early gallbladder cancer defined as Tis (Carcinoma in situ), T1A (Tumor invades lamina propia) and T1B (Tumor invades muscular layer), were included in this analysis. Results: Eighty patients aged 31 to 87 years (74% women) were analyzed. The diagnosis was made during surgery in two patients and during the pathological study in the rest. All 24 patients with Tis tumors were alive after 96 months of follow up. Only one of 16 patients with T1A tumors died of unknown causes. Among the 40 patients with T1B tumors, 24 were re-operated and survival was over 90%. Conclusions: This group of patients with early gallbladder cancer had a five years survival over 90%. In patients with muscle involvement does not seem necessary to extend the surgery.

Palabras clave : Gallbladder cancer; survival; early stage.
