  Purpose

Preoperative biliary drainage methods include percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD), endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (ENBD), and endoscopic retrograde biliary drainage (ERBD). Endoscopic biliary drainages often induce peritumoral inflammation and it increase difficulties in determining a proper resection margin. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinicopathological outcomes according to the methods of preoperative biliary drainage in periampullary cancers causing obstructive jaundice, and to find out a proper biliary drainage method.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of infectious complications after biliary drainage [ Time Frame: within 120 days after drainage ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    at least 90 days after operation change in serum bilirubin cholangitis blood test (complete blood cell count, liver function test, CRP)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect of reducing serum total bilirubin after drainage [ Time Frame: within 14 days after drainage ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Peritumoral inflammatory reaction after drainage [ Time Frame: within 7 days after operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Bile duct inflammation score measured with H&E staining

  • Fibrosis of the bile duct [ Time Frame: within 7 days after operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Fibrosis score measured with H&E staining

  • Difficulties in dissection around the tumor [ Time Frame: within 1 day after operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Degree of difficulties in dissection around the tumor tissue, which is assessed intraoperatively
