This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Analysis of preoperative portal vein embolization outcomes in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma: a single-center experience". The authors of this aricle analyze the outcomes of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) undergoing preoperative portal vein embolization (PVE).
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, oncologists, oncologic surgeons, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interests in PVE and HCC.
To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to
Name the incidence of major adverse events following PVE in patients with HCC.
Describe the clinical outcome and the median growth of the future liver remnant (FLR) following PVE in patients with HCC and underlying liver disease.
List expected oerall and disease-free survival for patients with HCC who undergo pre-operative PVE, irrespective of their future surgical candidacy.
