abstract

  • Partial hepatectomy is safe for patients with large HCC. In selected patients with large tumors, resection achieves similar overall survival and recurrence-free survival to that of patients with smaller tumors. Minimizing intraoperative blood loss appears to be critical for favorable long-term outcome in patients with large HCC.
