Role of locoregional therapies in the management of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was the sixth most common cancer and the third cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide in 2020. Liver resection and transplantation remain the cornerstone for patients with early-stage disease and represent the only option for potential cure in HCC. However, fewer than 10% of patients are considered suitable for surgery at the time of diagnosis. Locoregional therapies, defined as minimally invasive image-guided liver tumour-directed procedures, are integral to in the management of HCC. This review discusses the role of locoregional therapies in HCC management in the emergence of immune and systemic treatments.
