|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hepatocellular Carcinoma||Procedure: chemoembolization ,Radiofrequency ablation||Phase 1|
To assess whether the effectiveness of a combination of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization(TACE) and radiofrequency ablation(RFA) is superior to TACE and RFA alone in treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC)greater than 3 cm and to analyze the factors affecting the outcomes.
The patients with HCC of 3 or fewer lesions, each 3cm greater in diameter entered this randomized controlled trial. The primary end point was survival, and the secondary end points were tumor response.
