AIM To assess the efficacy and safety of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) combined with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after hepatectomy and to compare its outcome with a single modality. METHOD We retrospectively studied 103 patients with recurrent HCCs after hepatectomy who were excluded from repeat hepatectomy. Of them, 81 patients were male and 22 were female (mean age 55.8 +/- 10.7 years; range, 30-80 years). According to treatment… CONTINUE READING
