BACKGROUND/AIMS We retrospectively evaluated the local tumor control and safety of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) followed by stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in this pilot study. METHODOLOGY Twenty-eight patients not for the indication of hepatectomy or ablation procedures were enrolled in this study. Eligible criteria was as followed: i) less than 3 hypervascular HCC nodules, each up to 30 mm in diameter; ii) not suitable… CONTINUE READING
