Core Tip The Milan criteria for liver transplantation have improved survival of patients with small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but up to 20% of patients still experience HCC recurrence after transplantation. Microvascular invasion and tumors with poor histologic grade of differentiation are the most important risk factors for HCC recurrence, but they are evidenced after surgery on explant pathology examination. Several surrogate pretransplant biomarkers, directly related with tumor biology or systemic inflammation markers conditioning tumor progression, have been suggested to identify, alone or integrated in pretransplant prognostic scores, patients at high risk of HCC recurrence after liver transplantation.
