OBJECTIVE High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) combined with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been used to treat unresectable HCC, but its long-term effects and major prognostic factors remain to be determined. The purpose of this study was to assess its long-term effects and find major prognostic factors to help us select eligible patients in the future. METHODS 73 patients with unresectable HCC received follow-up after HIFU+TACE. The variables of sex, age, AFP level, liver… CONTINUE READING
