Tumor recurrence was defined as the appearance of new radiologic lesions, and survival was calculated from the beginning of the patient’s evaluation up to his or her death or follow-up loss.

Global cancer statistics, Correlation between preoperative serum alpha-fetoprotein levels and survival with respect to the surgical treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma at a tertiary care hospital in Veracruz, Mexico.

A total of Influence of tumor characteristics on the outcome of liver transplantation among patients with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Those findings must be corroborated in other case series with different population characteristics.

CiteScore measures average citations received per document published. Our group 9 previously reported that patients that underwent liver resection had lower AFP levels than other patients, which led to the development of the present study. El uso de los MT tiene algunas limitaciones: Cox regression was carried out with the different AFP levels to determine the survival risk in those patients. Guidelines for the use of tumour markers.

The authors declare that no patient data appear in this article. Eight fetal deaths were presented, seven of them with high alphafetoprotein. Different studies suggest the relation of an elevated preoperative serum AFP level to the prediction of recurrence, survival, and outcome in HCC.

Patients were excluded that underwent other surgical treatments local ablation, chemoembolization, transplant, chemotherapy, and no treatment.

Tumor recurrence was defined as the appearance of new radiologic lesions, and survival was calculated from the beginning of the patient’s evaluation up to his or her death or follow-up alfafetoproetina.


Most markers also have a prognostic value at the time of diagnosis, since their concentration is seriica to tumor size. We can say that, in general, due to the lack of high diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, tumor markers are not helpful for an early detection of neoplasms, but they do help werica confirm a diagnosis already established by more sensitive methods.
