Core Tip Liver transplantation (LT) has become an ideal treatment for liver cirrhosis associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) as it simultaneously removes the tumors and cures the underlying liver cirrhosis. Living donor LT (LDLT) offers a flexible timing for transplantation providing timeframe for well preparation of transplantation. The study investigates the outcome in relation to the intention of pre-transplantation loco-regional therapy in LDLT for HCC. Although the study is still unable to establish a definitive therapeutic protocol to achieve a beneficial outcome of HCC after LDLT, achieving profound tumor necrosis by loco-regional therapy could also offer better outcomes for patients undergoing LDLT for HCC.
