abstract

  • Partial hepatectomy is safe, effective, and potentially curative therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma. The presence of cirrhosis did not affect the surgical mortality rate but did affect the long-term survival rate. The cause of cirrhosis did not influence outcome. As treatment for small hepatocellular carcinomas, partial hepatectomy produces results similar to those of transplantation. For patients with large tumors who are poor candidates for transplantation, resection results in long-term survival in one third of patients.
