Abstract
Liver transplantation is the only curable treatment modality for hepatocellular carcinoma with advanced liver cirrhosis. While treatment outcome of the liver transplantation is improving, time needed to standby until the surgery is getting longer because of both the lack of liver donors and increasing demands for the transplantation. Therefore, importance of bridging therapy before the liver transplantation is recently highlighted. We herein report our recent experience about a patient who successfully undergone transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and stereotactic radiation therapy (START) as bridging therapy and later had liver transplantation operation.
