OBJECTIVE Determine the histologic response-rate (complete versus partial tumor extinction) after single radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) arising in cirrhosis. Investigate possible predictors of response and assess efficacy and safety of RFA as a bridge to liver transplantation (OLT). BACKGROUND RFA has become the elective treatment of local control of HCC, although histologic data supporting radiologic assessment of response are rare and prospective… CONTINUE READING
