Abstract

Fourteen patients with fibrolamellar hepatoma were treated with radical excision. In eight, a subtotal hepatic resection was performed from 16 months to more than 16 years ago. None of the patients have died and recurrences have been seen in only one patient. Six other patients had total hepatectomy and hepatic replacement. Two of these six patients have died of metastases and a third is living with recurrent tumor. This experience has justified the continuing use of quite aggressive extirpative procedures for the treatment of fibrolamellar hepatoma.
