Hepatocellular carcinoma: When to consider surgery?


Melloul, E; Lesurtel, M; Clavien, P A (2011). Hepatocellular carcinoma: When to consider surgery? In: Williams, R; Taylor-Robinson, S D. Clinical Dilemmas in Primary Liver Cancer. Oxford, GB: Blackwell-Wiley Publishing, 160-167.

Abstract

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent primary hepatic tumour, and 90% of the cases occur in patients with chronic underlying liver disease. Liver transplantation and liver resection are the two curative treatment options. However, liver transplantation cannot be proposed in all patients with HCC due to donor scarcity and the limitations of transplant criteria in this context. Liver resection is as a result becoming the best alternative treatment, providing that liver function is not altered and the future liver remnant volume is adequate. This Chapter focuses on the indications for safe liver resection in HCC patients associated with normal liver parenchyma or with underlying chronic liver disease. The short and long-term outcomes after liver resection for HCC will also be reported.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
