  • There is no consensus about the optimal treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with cirrhotic portal hypertension, While this group of patients are classified as hepatectomy contraindication according to guidelines from National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • With improvement of surgical technique, preoperative evaluation, and perioperative management,especially the Precise Hepatectomy Technique, more and more studies confirmed the safety of surgical intervention to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with cirrhotic portal hypertension.However, most of the previous studies were either retrospective or with small samples.

  • Aim of our Unit is to compare the efficacy of two different doses of metformin (1 g/day and 2 g/day) with atorvastatin (20 mg/day) on amelioration of inflammatory and cardiometabolic parameters, ultrasound signs and clinical scores associated with liver fibrosis in early-stage NAFLD non-diabetic patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The investigators will exclude from the study patients with clinical-biochemical and ultrasound markers of disease severity (age, BMI, lipid profile, AST, ALT, Angulo, BAAT and HAIR clinical fibrosis scores, signs of portal hypertension and posterior attenuation of the deep liver parenchyma at US).

  • Treatment
  • The investigators project is a prospective randomized controlled trial, planning to compare the safety, efficacy and quality of life between precise hepatectomy and combined interventional treatment on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with cirrhotic portal hypertension, to make a further understanding of optimal strategy.
