BOTERO, Rafael Claudino. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and liver transplantation. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2013, vol.28, suppl.1, pp.33-40. ISSN 0120-9957.

Today liver transplantation has become the best therapeutic modality for HCC because it allows not only eradication of the tumor, but also removes cirrhotic liver with its potential for new tumors. In this way liver transplantation improves survival and chances of a cure in both the short and long term. This review aims to provide an update on management of hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic patients from initial identification of the lesion, through inclusion and exclusion criteria, and including monitoring and therapeutic alternatives for patients on the waiting list for donor organs. It includes an overview of the importance of studying the explant for future management as well as long-term prognosis and adjunct therapies in cases of post-transplant recurrence
