Abstract

The study aims to analyze the oncologic outcomes of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) after combined transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and radiotherapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with major vascular invasion. We retrospectively reviewed 17 HCC patients with major vascular invasion who underwent LDLT after combined treatment modality between May 2007 and September 2014. The LDLT timing was determined by the surgeons depending on the disease status and liver function. The intrahepatic recurrence-free survival, disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS) rates were estimated from the date of the LDLT. The median follow-up period was 24.5 months (range, 6.4-66.0 months) after the LDLT. The interval between the combined treatment and the LDLT was a median of 5 months (range, 0.4-65.3 months). On the explanted liver, total necrosis was shown in five patients (29.4 %). The 1- and 3-year DFS rates were 70.6 and 57.8 %, respectively. The 1- and 3-year OS rates were 87.4 and 60.5 %, respectively. The major pattern of failure was distant metastasis (35.3 %), and intrahepatic recurrence occurred in three patients (17.6 %) who experienced distant metastasis. In the selected HCC patients with major vascular invasion, LDLT after combined TACE and radiotherapy showed acceptable oncologic outcomes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 29 January 2017.
All research outputs
#4,867,977
of 8,976,941 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery
#456
of 1,058 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#174,638
of 309,453 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery
#19
of 26 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,976,941 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,058 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 309,453 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 26 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
