Brief Summary:
Assessment of short-term outcomes of ipsilateral lobe arterial devascularization of the large hepatocellular carcinoma: single center non-randomized trial.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Hepatocellular Carcinoma Procedure: ILAD

Detailed Description:
Assessment of the 30-day mortality and major complications as well as the tumor size changes of the patients undergoing ipsilateral lobe arterial devascularization of the large hepatocellular carcinoma. This is a prospective non randomized trial carried out at the Ribat University Hospital between April 2017 to March 2018.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 12 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Prospective and non-randomized clinical trial
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Short-term Outcome of Ipsilateral Liver Lobe Devascularization of the Large Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Actual Study Start Date : May 20, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : May 19, 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 30, 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Devascularization
Patients undergoing ipsilateral liver lobe arterial devascularization (ILAD)
Procedure: ILAD
This is attained via a laparotomy involves isolation of the arterial blood supply of the tumor-containing liver lobe (the ipsilateral hepatic artery as well as the extrahepatic arterial collaterals) while preserving the feeding veins.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Short term mortality rate [ Time Frame: 30 day ]
    Percentage of patients` postoperative deaths


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Short term major complications` rate [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Incidence of Clavien/Dindo grade 3 or more postoperative complications

  2. Tumor size change rate [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Mean percentage change in the sizes of the patients` tumors
