Core Tip Optimal candidates for hepatectomy should benefit from the tumour removal that encompasses the risk of dying from post-operative liver function worsening and failure. This means that when evaluating patients for surgery, the competing risks of tumour-related death and of liver failure have to be weighed against each other, and considered from the point of view of available alternative therapies. In the present study, a large cohort of Child-Pugh class A cirrhotic patients submitted to curative (R0) hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma was analysed to provide a competing-risk analysis of these two competing events.
