Combined Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy And Trans-Arterial Chemoembolization As Initial Treatment in BCLC Stage B-C Hepatocellular Carcinoma

from Strahlentherapie und Onkologie

PURPOSE: We retrospectively evaluated the efficacy and safety of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) combined with trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as initial therapy in Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) system stage B-C hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventy-two patients received a single dose of TACE followed by SBRT 4 weeks later. All patients had tumor sizes ≥5 cm, at least 700 ml of disease-free liver, Child-Pugh (CP) score ≤ B7 and tumor nodules ≤5. SBRT dose, ranging from 6 × 5-8 Gy or 5-10 × 4 Gy, was individualized according to normal tissue constraints. more
