Topic: Predictive index for tumor recurrence after liver transplantation

Predictive index for tumor recurrence after liver transplantation for locally advanced intrahepatic and hilar cholangiocarcinoma.

"CONCLUSIONS This model was highly predictive of long-term outcomes after OLT for locally advanced intrahepatic and hilar CCA and can be applied clinically for risk stratification of patients considered for OLT. Long-term disease recurrence-free survival was excellent in low-risk and acceptable in intermediate-risk groups, justifying the expansion of liver transplant criteria for treatment of this challenging malignancy."
