Abstract

Objective: Little is known regarding risk factors for biliary tract cancer, i.e., gallbladder carcinoma and extrahepatic bile duct carcinoma. This isthe first case-control study conducted in the U.S. regarding risk factors for these cancers. Methods: In this hospital-based case-control study, we reviewed the medical records of 69 patients with primary biliary tract cancer who mere admitted to Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center for surgery between January 1, 1980, and April 4, 1994, and of 138 controls, consisting ofpatients admitted for surgery for benign conditions. Results: We found a significant association between cholelithiasis and biliary tract cancers (odds ratio, 19.5; 95% confidence interval, 6.4-59.4). Risk factors associatedwith gallbladder cancer included female gender, age, cigarette smoking, and postmenopausal status in women, Risk factors associated with extrahepaticbile duct cancer included history of cholecystectomy and hysterectomy in women, Conclusion: The risk factors for biliary tract cancers that have beenidentified in our study delineate a high-risk population, which in the future may be targeted for preventive measures.
