Its natural history is typified by an initial, largely asymptomatic, "compensated" phase followed by "decompensation" due to complications of raised portal pressures and hepatocellular dysfunction. Currently the only definitive treatment option for cirrhosis is liver transplantation which is limited in its ...


Combination Therapy of Microwave Ablation and Cellular Immunotherapy for Hepatocellular Carcinoma

HCC (D 5 cm, fewer than three tumors) patients were treated with radical MWA and 4-6 courses of immunotherapy with CIK every year. The immunotherapy were started at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 14 weeks, 18 weeks and then every 12 weeks after MWA. Peripheral blood mononuclear ...


Surefire Infusion System vs. Standard Microcatheter Use During Holmium-166 Radioembolization

Study design: clinical within-subject randomized controlled trial. Study population: 25 patients with unresectable, chemorefractory, liver-dominant colorectal liver metastases. Intervention: scout and therapeutic doses of holmium-166 microspheres will be administered in the left and right hepatic artery during two sequential angiography procedures on the same day. In all subjects, the use ...


Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) for Palliation of Cholangiocarcinoma

Hepatic Arterial Infusion Chemotherapy(HAIC) for Hepatoma After Resection

The high incidence of HCC recurrence following liver resection is a serious issue. The recurrent rate is as high as 50-60% at 3 years and 70-100% at 5 years.
