Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

These populations harbor dysplastic hepatocytes as a result of altered gene expression, telomerase erosions and even chromosome aberrations. A total of patients with HCC were analyzed in this study. Currently, it is de facto reference staging system. Our surveillance program is based on ultrasound performed every 6 months. Thorgeirsson S, Grisham J. Open in a separate window.

The mean age of the patients was Finally, once diagnosis is established, the prognosis of patients will vary according to the evolutionary stage at which the neoplasm is diagnosed and the treatment received.

The most accepted hypothesis describes a step-by-step hepatocarcijoma through which external stimuli induce genetic alterations in mature hepatocytes leading to cell death and cellular proliferation clasjficacion.

Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

Please review our privacy policy. There is no doubt that the classical staging systems have already been improved. Finally, the potential relevance of a molecular signature identified in terms of outcome prediction is unknown, and further research is needed to obtain this valuable biological information that may aid in classifying the patients.

In that sense, it has recently been validated as the best staging system in a cohort of patients with early HCC Some studies found that HCC patients with high AFP tended to have greater tumor size, bilobar involvement, massive or diffuse types, and portal vein thrombosis, and equally, AFP was a prognostic indicator Seminar in Liver Disease ; Patients and methods This observational study was approved by the Institutional Review Board of our hospital.

Hepatocellular carcinoma HCC is a major health problem worldwide. In Spain an important narcelona of patients at risk of HCC are not in a surveillance program 11which is due to a lack of strict compliance with the same, as well as not knowing of the existence of underlying liver cirrhosis in those patients with asymptomatic live disease. A total of 86 patients Several reasons explain the difficulty in identifying a world-wide system.

During the hepatocwrcinoma period, 59 patients BCLC 4 Serum AFP determination is also performed every 6 months.


The new four-stage system may improve the stratification of resected tumors, even though it is controversial whether they will apply to nonsurgical patients. Intention-to-treat analysis of surgical treatment for early hepatocellular carcinoma: Screening for hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis. How should patients with hepatocellular carcinoma be staged? However, this system is useful for identifying only end-stage patients, and provides no valid discrimination for less advanced patients.

The diagnosis of HCC was based on the recommendation of international guidelines: Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank Rafael Cuena for his support with the statistics. Trends in mortality from hepatocellular carcinoma in Europe, Predicting hepatitis B virus-positive metastatic hepatocellular carcinomas using gene expression profiling and supervised machine learning.

Prospective validation of the CLIP score: Support Center Support Center. The median survival among each group was: Adapted from Llovet JM et al.

Hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis: In this sense, we think our series is possibly more homogeneous and more appropriately reflects bracelona evolution of HCC patients in a hospital such as ours, due to less biases by including all HCC patients in our department, and by not excluding patients with worse prognosis who normally would not be included in series from reference hospitals.
