The purpose of this study is to choose the preferred treatment modality for solitary, small hepatocellular carcinoma.
To compare the below things between operation group and percutaneous ethanol injection therapy (PEIT) group:
- 5 year overall survival rate
- Disease free survival rate
- Cumulative recurrence rate
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Ethanol injection has been for many years the standard approach as percutaneous treatment of non-surgical early hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic patients. Radiofrequency ablation has ...
To evaluate the efficacy of Seocalcitol in prolonging time to relapse following intended curative resection or percutaneous ablative treatment, i.e. percutaneous ethanol injection(s), perc...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a consequence of liver cirrhosis. In early tumour stages, tumour resection or liver transplantation are therapeutic options; later tumour stages may be tr...
A Phase I/II, Open Label Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Autologous Cytokine-Induced Killer (CIK) Cell for Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) after Transarterial Che...
Ultrasound guided percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) is an established method in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and considered a safe procedure with severe complication...
Evidence supporting any one treatment for plunging ranula is limited. Standard treatment-complete excision of the sublingual gland and ranula-is invasive and morbid given the close operative proximity...
To explore the long-term outcomes and safety of ultrasound-guided percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) of exophytic tumors in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients.
The current curative treatment modalities for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are unfortunately fraught with high rates of HCC recurrence. Hence there is a need to prevent or reduce HCC recurrence afte...
The miRNAs are demonstrated to be involved in the carcinogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and some exhibit potential value for oncotherapy. This study was designed to explore the role of miR-...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) develops in about 3-4% of cirrhotic patients every year. The squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCCA) has been found elevated in liver cancer specimens by immunohistochemi...
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Radiographic visualization of the aorta and its branches by injection of contrast media, using percutaneous puncture or catheterization procedures.
An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.
The type species of the genus ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS which causes human HEPATITIS B and is also apparently a causal agent in human HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA. The Dane particle is an intact hepatitis virion, named after its discoverer. Non-infectious spherical and tubular particles are also seen in the serum.
