Liver Resection For Recurrent Hepatocellular Carcinoma After Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy

from Hepatology Research

AIM: Although radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an effective local treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), local recurrence is relatively frequent. We aimed to elucidate the validity of salvage liver resection for recurrent HCC after RFA. METHODS: Patients who underwent liver resection for recurrent HCC after RFA (LR after RFA) and those who underwent second liver resection for recurrent HCC (Second LR) were included. The short-term outcomes were compared between the two groups. The survival rates between the two groups were compared after propensity-score matching to adjust for the variables, patient background, liver function, and tumor status. more
