The advent of interventional therapy has given a wider field to a form of treatment that could provide an opportunity to those patients who, for various reasons, cannot undergo surgical treatments. Thus, local and regional therapies such as percutaneous ablation and chemoembolization have become supporting curative and palliative therapies for patients with no other choice. However, local and regional therapies should be framed within the clinical stratification of HCC which allows us to estimate the life expectancy and the best treatment for the patient’s stage and the balance of risks and benefits of the treatment chosen.

Keywords : Local and regional therapies; Percutaneous ablation; Chemoembolization.
