Hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma in diameter of > or = 10 cm was effective for patients without liver cirrhosis and with stage II or III. Appropriate selection of the candidates for partial hepatectomy based on the above prognostic factors may play an important role in the improvement of high mortality rate and poor long-term survival for such patients. Prospective randomized trials are needed to define the role of hepatic resection for cirrhotic patients with large HCC.
