Fagiuoli S, et al. Prevalence of antibodies to hepatitis C virus in Spanish patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and hepatic cirrhosis.

The main advantage of the BCLC staging system is that it links staging with treatment modalities and with an estimation of life expectancy that is based on published response rates to the different treatments A new prognostic system for hepatocellular carcinoma: Increased survival of cirrhotic patients with a hepatocellular carcinoma detected during surveillance.

Trends in mortality clasivicacion hepatocellular carcinoma in Europe, Differentiation of early well-differentiated HCC from preneoplastic lesions is a histopathologic challenge, and molecular markers are awaited in this setting 14 An increased incidence in southern Europe is probably related to hepatitis B and C infection and increasing alcohol intake 5which are major risk factors for HCC 2,6.

Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

Med Clin Barc ; They use rough descriptions of tumor stage that are not in accordance with the predictive value of tumor size hepatoarcinoma multicentricity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the BCLC classification in our clinical practice and to know what the prognostic value of AFP is.


Results A total of patients with HCC were analyzed in this study. According the BCLC system the survival varies from one study to another.

J Clin Gastroenterol ; The Okuda clasoficacion system was the first system to incorporate liver function status into the staging of HCC The Cox model was used to identify simple independent predictors of survival. An independent evaluation of modern prognostic scores in a central European cohort of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.

Heterogeneity among different studies may reflect both inclusion of patients with different stages of disease and variability in the molecular characteristics and biological behavior of the tumor. Our current level of knowledge prevents recommendation of a staging system to be used worldwide. Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank Rafael Cuena for his support with the statistics.

How should patients with hepatocellular carcinoma be staged? The new TNM according with the AJCC has only internal validation, and is based on series of patients undergoing resection 29as is the case with the seminal paper proposing JIS classification PEI was performed under ultrasound guidance.

Screening for hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis. HCC is a complex neoplasm, in most cases on a background of a preneoplastic damaged liver. Complete response was defined as the absence of enhanced tumoral areas reflecting complete tissue necrosis. Natural history of untreated nonsurgical hepatocellular carcinoma: HCC is now ds leading cause of death among cirrhotic patients 3.

These treatments are assumed to improve the natural history of the disease. In our study, the overall median survival time was LlovetSenior Scientist 1 2.


Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

There were 4 patients with positive serology for HIV. Prognosis of HCC was assumed to be poor when radical treatments were not feasible. In this review, the AFP was among the first five significant variables in 20 studies. However, in some studies AFP was associated with survival 15,16 and can help to identify subsets of HCC patients with increased risk for early recurrence and poor prognosis after hepatectomy 17 or transplant 18but its value has not been properly defined.

Dysplastic nodules and hepatocarcinogenesis. 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 Prognostic performance of the new classification of primary liver cancer of Japan 4th edition for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma: A heepatocarcinoma signature as a predictor of survival in breast cancer.

Investigators in Hong Kong described a staging system analysing their experience in patients, most of them with HBV-related cirrhosis Finally, once diagnosis is established, the prognosis hepatocarcimoma patients will vary according to the evolutionary stage at which the neoplasm is diagnosed and the treatment received.
