Transarterial Chemoembolization in Children to Treat Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma

from Pediatric Transplantation

Children with unresectable HCC have a dismal prognosis and few approved treatment options. TACE is an effective treatment option for adults with HCC, but experience in children is very limited. Retrospective analysis was performed of 8 patients aged 4-17 years (4 male, mean 12.5 years) who underwent TACE for unresectable HCC. Response to TACE was evaluated by change in AFP, RECIST and tumor volume, PRETEXT, and transplantation eligibility by UCSF and Milan criteria. more
