BACKGROUND The aim of tumor-based selection criteria in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is to prevent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in patients likely to experience recurrence and to maximize OLT opportunities for those with a high likelihood of cure. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to assess total tumor volume (TTV) as a selection criterion for OLT in patients with HCC beyond Milan or University of California San Francisco criteria. METHODS We identified patients who underwent… CONTINUE READING
