    Many staging systems of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were established; however, there is no consensus on which is proper in predicting prognosis. This study aims to evaluate various commonly used staging systems of HCC. Patients who underwent surgery during 2001-2007 were included. All patient...

    The aim of the present study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonically guided fine-needle aspiration for liver lesions detected by ultrasound scan. A total of 142 aspirations were carried out in 129 patients with unifocal or multifocal liver lesions suspected of malignancy. The...

    This article examines biopsy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in cirrhosis. HCC is the eighth most frequent tumor entity worldwide. It appears from the data that United States guided biopsy has a very high efficacy in defining HCC. A rate of 10% false negatives is probably difficult to beat by...
