Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

Several new systems have been proposed recently, and only three of them have been validated at this point. Outcomes of dysplastic nodules in human cirrhotic liver: Impact of etiology of cirrhosis on the survival of patients diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma during surveillance. Whether the patient was treated or not was included in the model as in some cases patients could not be treated according the BCLC system no options o rejected treatment.

Univariate survival curves were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method; the differences in the survival rates between the groups were compared using the log-rank test. Natural history of untreated nonsurgical hepatocellular carcinoma: This classification combines five variables in a score system that stratifies patients in three stages.

TNM stage The conventional TNM system, which only contains variables related to tumor stage, has been mostly tested in the surgical setting, and showed poor prognostic prediction in HCC patients undergoing either resection 39 or transplantation It is the fifth most common neoplasm in the world, with more than half million new cases yearly 1.

Conversely they face the same difficulty in early cases, as prognostic modeling for early HCC has specific requirements 2627 Embolizations were as selective as possible.

Results A total of patients with HCC were analyzed in this study. 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.


Int J Cancer ; Survival of early stage patients is modified by treatment and thus, prognostic prediction has to include treatment-related variables. Prognostic factors of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients undergoing hepatic resection. Hepatocellular carcinoma HCC is a major health problem worldwide.

Three patients with a single nodule greater than 8 cm were classified as stage B because we considered that they had a multinodular tumor. Validation of a new staging system.

Staging systems in hepatocellular carcinoma

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

Overall, two groups of patients with nonsurgical HCC have been identified: In some studies AFP was associated with survival 23, but in others it did not define practical value 24, The authors wish to thank Rafael Cuena for his support clasificaciob the statistics.

The conventional staging systems for hepatocellular clasuficacion HCCsuch as the Okuda stage or the TNM stage have shown important limitations in classifying patients. The general rules for the clinical and pathological study of primary liver cancer, 4th edn.

Prospective validation of the CLIP score: Levy I, Sherman M.

The prognosis of HCC was dismal two decades ago 7. An independent evaluation of modern prognostic scores in a central European cohort of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.

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.

A new prognostic classification for predicting survival in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Prognostic factors for survival in patients with early-intermediate hepatocellular carcinoma undergoing non-surgical therapy: Intention-to-treat analysis of surgical treatment for clsaificacion hepatocellular carcinoma: Patients and methods This observational study was approved by the Institutional Review Board of our hospital.


Thereby, two subgroups with a markedly different life expectancy can hepatoocarcinoma identified among patients in an intermediate evolutionary stage. It has been compared with Okuda stage and TNM stage with better discriminatory power.

Staging of hepatocellular carcinoma: Expression and hypomethylation of alpha-fetoprotein gene in unicentric and multicentric human hepatocellular carcinoma.

Initially several therapeutic strategies were used. 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 However, to be clinically useful, the molecular classification should be incorporated into a staging scheme, which effectively separates patients into groups with homogeneous prognosis and response to treatment, and thus serves to aid in the selection of appropriate therapy.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the BCLC classification in our clinical practice and clasificscion know what the prognostic value of AFP is.

The incidence of HCC rose in the last decade. A recent comparison with other staging systems hepatocarcinoam shown that it has limited prognostic capacity in patients with early HCC The BCLC staging system may clasifixacion patients at early stages, and guide the treatment strategy.
