Keywords Liver transplantation; Recurrence-free survival; Hepatocellular carcinoma; Radiological response; Locoregional therapies; Inflammatory markers; Selection criteria
Core Tip The response to loco-regional therapy and biological markers appear to stratify the prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma patients awaiting liver transplantation (LT) better than morphological criteria; however, their role in the selection scheme still needs validation. We analysed a homogeneous cohort of 70 patients treated exclusively by transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) prior to LT; the radiological response was assessed by two different enhancing methods (mRECIST and EASL criteria) that provided an accurate preoperative estimation of histological necrosis. We also demonstrated that a lack of response to TACE and a high platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio before surgery are strongly predictive of tumour recurrence, independently of the Milan criteria status at referral.
