Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common tumors worldwide. For this disease, a variety of therapeutic measures have been applied, including hepatic resections, total hepatectomy followed by allografting, transarterial chemoembolization, and percutaneous tumor ablative therapy by ethanol, microwave coagulation, and radiofrequency ablation. This article focuses on the current status of hepatic resections for HCC.
