Core Tip Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is widely recognized as an effective therapy for early stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients who are not suitable candidates for surgical resection, such as those with decompensated liver function or portal hypertension. Reports from Brazil of clinical experience with RFA management of HCC are rare. This study evaluated 34 consecutive patients with early HCC treated with RFA at a single Brazilian hospital. RFA was efficacious for promoting local tumor control and positive outcome was related to preserved liver function. Careful evaluation of liver function may help to identify the best candidates for this procedure.
