A comparison of the molecular clock of 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.
This classification combines five variables in a score system that stratifies patients in three stages. Eur Radiol ;17 Supl.
Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma
HCC is a complex neoplasm, in most cases on a background of a bepatocarcinoma damaged liver. Only mortality because abrcelona CHC or CHC and progressive deterioration of liver function were the only end-points used in the analysis. The Okuda staging and the Child-Pugh classification might be used as a part of any new clinical staging system, but should no longer be used alone.
Over the past few years, the wide spread use and development of more sophisticated diagnostic tools, and the improvement he;atocarcinoma therapeutic techniques, although not “radical”, have allowed a higher number of HCC patients to be treated and have led to an improvement in overall survival.
Med Clin Barc ; Investigators in Hong Kong described a staging system analysing their experience in patients, most of them with HBV-related cirrhosis The main hepatocarcinomx 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 When clinically indicated, we used a combined treatment.
Hospital Virgen de la Salud. Cclasificacion detection of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with chronic type B hepatitis. Nowadays, experts in HCC management may choose among eight different staging systems 711262728293031 Table Inone of them with universal acceptance Several additional investigations to identify variables related to prognosis in many countries have been published in the last years.
In the report of Grieco 35the median survival was Hepatocellular carcinoma in Central Europe: The new four-stage system may improve the stratification of clssificacion tumors, even though it is controversial whether they will apply to nonsurgical patients. Hepatocellular carcinoma HCC is the most common primary liver malignancy 1 and is the major cause of deaths in patients with cirrhosis 2,3.
Clinical management of hepatocellular carcinoma. Accordingly, prognostic modeling in Hepatocsrcinoma patients is highly complex. In a meta-analysis study of untreated patients the pooled estimated of BCLC B stage 1-year survival rate was Natural history The natural history of this neoplasm is not completely known.
Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma
In Spain an important proportion 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. Our surveillance program is based on ultrasound performed every 6 months.
Patients at stage B with intermediate HCC may benefit from chemoembolization. A total of 6 patients 4.
Univariate survival curves were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method; the differences in the survival clasifiaccion between the groups were compared using the log-rank test. Thereby, two subgroups with a markedly different life expectancy can be identified among patients in an intermediate evolutionary stage. The BCLC staging system may discriminate patients at early stages, and guide the treatment strategy.
However, this system is useful for identifying only end-stage patients, and provides no valid discrimination for less advanced patients. Finally, the potential relevance of a molecular signature identified in terms of barxelona prediction is unknown, and further research is needed to obtain this valuable biological information that may aid in classifying the patients.
We regularly phone the patients when they don’t keep nepatocarcinoma appointment. Survival of HCC patients has improved because of the advancement of the time of diagnosis and the increase in therapeutic efficacy. A total of 23 patients The conventional TNM system, which only contains variables related to tumor stage, has been mostly gepatocarcinoma in the surgical setting, and showed poor prognostic prediction in HCC patients undergoing either resection 39 or transplantation Between January and Novemberconsecutive HCC patients were prospectively included in this study.
In these studies, treatment-related variables might not be identified as a relevant survival predictor and the use of the same set of variables for all patients may appear adequate.
