The optimal treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma has become increasingly complex with myriad of available treatment options. Although recently the liver transplantation has been accepted the best treatment for survival, the shortage of donor limits the extension of this procedures. As the neoadjuvant chemotherapy is being increasingly employed to downsize colorectal metastasis, the clinical trials have been extended to the hepatocellular carcinoma. Therefore we reviewed the use of liver resection following tumor downstaging with chemotherapeutic agents and Radiation therapy to treat unresectable HCC. Key Words: Hepatic resection․Downstaging․Transarterial chemoembolization․Radiation
