Cholangiocarcinomas are malignant tumors arising from the biliary tract and have an worldwide incidence of 0.5∼2.0/100,000 [1]. Complete resection of early stage tumors can be curative [2]. In cases when the disease is unresectable, the prognosis is generally poor with a 1 year survival of 53 % and 5 year survival of less than 5 % [3-6].
