ABSTRACT
All types of local ablation therapy (LAT) produce necrosis of hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) but the size and pattern of necrosis and possible prognostic significance for recurrence after liver transplantation (LT) has not been evaluated. The amount of LAT induced necrosis in explanted livers may be a good prognostic factor for HCC recurrence. This type of histopathological evaluation can help to identify patients with high risk of recurrence that would need closer follow up, and be eligible for secondary prevention trials after orthotopic LT.
