OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of sequential transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE )and portal vein embolization (PVE) before major hepatectomy for patients with hepatocellur carcinoma (HCC). METHODS In this retrospective case-control study, data were collected from patients who underwent sequential TACE and PVE prior to major hemihepactectomy. Liver volumes were measured by computed tomography volumetry before TACE, and preoperation to assess degree of future remnant… CONTINUE READING
