Surgical resection versus ablation for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma: A retrospective cohort analysis.

The most appropriate treatment for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unclear. This study compared the association of resection versus ablation with overall survival (OS) in patients w...

Laparoscopic Hepatectomy (with or without Robotic Assistance) versus Radiofrequency Ablation as a Minimally Invasive Treatment for Very Early-Stage or Early-Stage Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

The advantages of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) over hepatectomy as a treatment for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) include reduced morbidity and more rapid recovery. Although minimally inv...

Liver resection for recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma after radiofrequency ablation therapy.

Although radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an effective local treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), local recurrence is relatively frequent. We aimed to elucidate the validity of salvage liver r...

Combination of Resection and Ablative Treatment for Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Usefulness of Complementary Radiofrequency Ablation.

In HCC patients with multiple tumors in separate segments, monotherapy with surgical resection is often difficult when the estimated residual liver volume after surgery is thought to be inadequate. We...

Pretreatment Inflammation-Based Markers Predict Survival Outcomes in Patients with Early Stage Hepatocellular Carcinoma After Radiofrequency Ablation.

The prognostic significance of various systemic inflammation-based markers has been explored in different cancers after surgery. This study aimed to investigate whether these markers could predict out...

A Study Comparing Radiofrequency Ablation and Hepatic Resection for Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The purpose of this prospective randomized study is to compare the efficacy and safety of radiofrequency ablation and hepatic resection for small hepatocellular carcinomas with very homoge...

Comparison of Microwave and Radiofrequency Ablation for Liver

According to randomized controlled trial requirement, the therapeutic effectiveness of cooled-probe microwave ablation and radiofrequency ablation on early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma i...

Multi-pronged Ethanol Ablation and Radiofrequency Ablation of Early-stage Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of percutaneous ethanol ablation using a multi-pronged needle (QFEA) with that of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in th...

TACE as an Adjuvant Therapy After Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) for Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate whether transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) will improve the outcome of radiofrequency ablation for hepatocellular carcin...

Treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma With Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Associated With Postoperative TACE

A prospective randomized study was conducted to elucidate whether the outcome of hepatocellular carcinoma could be improved by radiofrequency ablation associated with postoperative transhe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.

Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.

The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.

A variant of well-differentiated epidermoid carcinoma that is most common in the oral cavity, but also occurs in the larynx, nasal cavity, esophagus, penis, anorectal region, vulva, vagina, uterine cervix, and skin, especially on the sole of the foot. Most intraoral cases occur in elderly male abusers of smokeless tobacco. The treatment is surgical resection. Radiotherapy is not indicated, as up to 30% treated with radiation become highly aggressive within six months. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.
