The first stage consisted of a drainage procedure in the form of cholecystogastrostomy to decompress the biliary tract and improve liver function, followed 4 weeks later by radical resection of the tumor.[18] In the late 1970s, studies on pre-operative biliary drainage (PBD) reported that it reduced the postoperative death rate in jaundiced patients.[19-22] In the 1980s, the effect of PBD was questioned in many retrospective and prospective studies, and focus shifted towards the negative effects of PBD, such as an increase in the rate of infectious complications.
