Liver Resection for Hepatocellular Carcinoma ≤3 cm: Results of an Italian Multicenter Study on 588 Patients
Journal of the American College of Surgeons, 06/04/2012
Giuliante F et al. – Liver resection for S–HCC has improved over the years, with decreased operative risk. Long–term survival after LR has increased. Despite small tumor size, rates of microsatellite nodules and microvascular invasion are not negligible. Presence of microsatellite lesions was the only variable identified as being associated with poor both OS and DFS.
