This case report describes the first Danish case of endoluminal radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of malignant biliary obstruction due to a Klatskin tumour in a 59-year-old male undergoing neoadjuvant therapy. The treatment was interrupted several times due to recurrent occlusions of the bile duct stents. The patient was offered endoluminal RFA of the central bile ducts in order to reduce his tumour burden and possibly achieve longer stent patency, so the palliative therapy could be resumed. The procedure was performed successfully without any adverse events achieving access to previously occluded left hepatic duct.
