Survival outcomes of RFA versus surgical resection in HCC

Survival outcomes of RFA versus surgical resection in HCC

In the treatment of HCC, how do survival outcomes of RFA compare with surgical resection? 

Most studies evaluating surgical resection and RFA show similar long-term outcomes for HCC smaller than 3 cm.

In a randomized control trial of 112 patients with a solitary HCC less than 5 cm by Chen et al., there were no significant differences in local recurrence, overall survival, or disease-free survival between the two groups.
