Follow Up

  • ​Patients who have undergone curative resection should be followed every 3 to 6 months with AFP and liver imaging for about two years
  • Patients should then continue with annual lifelong screening as they remain at risk for developing recurrent disease
  • Ideally, patients with hepatitis B infection should be evaluated by a gastroenterologist for anti-viral therapy as reduction of HBV-DNA levels to undetectable levels reduces the risk of recurrence
  • Transplanted patients should be followed in specialized transplant centres
  • Relapse following resection or transplantation should be evaluated for treatment by a multidisciplinary HPB team
