Most patients had Child-Pugh class A The Cox model was used to identify simple independent predictors of survival. This classification uses variables related to tumor stage, liver functional status, physical status, and cancer-related symptoms, and links the baecelona stages described with a treatment algorithm Figure 1. Survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis: Early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with chronic type B hepatitis.

These populations harbor dysplastic hepatocytes as a result of altered gene expression, telomerase clasificacoin and even chromosome aberrations. This study includes the widest comparison among staging systems, in comparison with other retrospective studies in which the limited collection of data impairs the ability to test all the systems available.

Second, the disease is very heterogeneous around the world, and this reflects different underlying epidemiological backgrounds and risk factors. Currently, it is de facto reference staging system. Treatment failure was defined as the persistence of contrast enhancement within the tumoral area after completing treatment.

When clinically indicated, we used a combined treatment.

Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

Aliment Pharmacol Ther ; Even some societies have endorsed one of the systems 42with controversial acceptance 43 Trends in survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma between and in United States barcelonna There are other staging systems.


The evaluation of fine-needle procedures for the diagnosis of focal liver lesions in cirrhosis.

The Dlasificacion score is used in patients with advanced tumors. Barcelpna analysis of surgical treatment for early hepatocellular carcinoma: Conversely they face the same difficulty in early cases, as prognostic modeling for early HCC has specific requirements 2627 claasificacion, In one study, the AFP was an independent risk factor for mortality only in untreated patients In the report of Grieco 35the median survival was Treatment approach of hepatocellular carcinoma in Spain.

The molecular pathogenesis of HCC is complex 12 The most accepted hypothesis describes a step-by-step process through which external stimuli induce genetic alterations in mature hepatocytes leading to cell death and cellular proliferation regeneration. HCC is now the leading cause of death among cirrhotic patients 3.

Liver Cancer Study Group of Japan. Bruix J, Llovet JM. It has been compared with Okuda stage and TNM stage with better discriminatory power. Proposal of a modified cancer of the liver clasificaacion program staging system based on the model for end-stage liver disease for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma undergoing loco-regional therapy.

Prospective validation of the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer staging system. Analysis of hepatocellular carcinoma patients in southern Taiwan: In these cases, it is assumed that therapies actively modify the natural course of the disease.

In Western countries and Japan, hepatitis C virus HCV infection is the main risk factor, together with other causes of cirrhosis 4 clasificacioj, 6.

A total of 6 patients 4. Farinati 39 confirmed the prognostic value of AFP in a clasificwcion with 1, patients, with poorer survival in patients with higher levels, but no clear prognostic impact in the individual patient.

Hepatocellular carcinoma HCC is the most common primary liver malignancy 1 and is the major cause of deaths in patients with cirrhosis 2,3.


This score combines four variables that provide a seven-stage classification system.

Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

As we have said before, our series is possibly more homogeneous in terms of diagnosis, staging and treatment. Tandon P, Garcia-Tsao G. And some studies included special patients, for example only asymptomatic patients with non-surgical treatment.

In our opinion, the effectiveness of more powerful prognostic criteria such as tumor size, vascular invasion, Child class and extrahepatic spread can be improved by the prognostic value of AFP. It is the fifth most common neoplasm in the world, with more than half million new cases yearly 1. Prognostic factors of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients undergoing hepatic resection.

There is no doubt that the classical staging systems have already been improved.

A comparison of the molecular clock claaificacion hepatitis C virus in the United States and Japan predicts that hepatocellular carcinoma incidence in the United States will increase over the next two decades. Investigators in Hong Kong described a staging system analysing their experience in patients, most of them with HBV-related cirrhosis Embolizations were as selective as possible.

This observational study was approved by the Institutional Review Board of our hospital. Llovet hepatocracinoma, Senior Scientist 1 2. In our study we also validated barcelon BCLC as a good prognostic system. The most frequent cause of liver disease was hepatitis C infection Prospective validation of the CLIP score: Between January and Novemberconsecutive HCC patients were prospectively included in this study.

LR was performed in 16 patients Impact of large regenerative, low grade and high grade dysplastic nodules in hepatocellular carcinoma development.
