Hepatocellular Carcinoma – Clinical Research covers the clinical aspects of hepatocellular carcinoma. Again this book is a compendium of papers written by experts from different parts of the world to present the most-up-to-date knowledge on the clinical aspects of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Hepatocellular Carcinoma – Clinical Research is divided into three sections: (I) Diagnosis / Differential Diagnosis; (II) Surgical Treatment; and (III) Non-surgical Treatment. There are altogether 19 chapters covering topics from novel diagnostic methods to hepatic lesions mimicking hepatocellular carcinoma, from laparoscopic liver resection to major hepatectomy without allogeneic blood transfusion, from molecular targeted therapy to transarterial radioembolization, and from local ablative therapy to regional therapy. This volume is an important contribution to the clinical management of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
The intended readers of this book are clinicians who are interested in hepatocellular carcinoma, including hepatologists, liver surgeons, interventional and diagnostic radiologists, pathologists and epidemiologists. General surgeons, general physicians, trainees, hospital administrators, and instrument and drug manufacturers will also find this book useful as a reference.
